Anne Inman with the SBDC is truly remarkable. When I was looking for a loan, I talked to one bank whose loan officer said that in 40 years, he’d never seen a plan as qualified as the plan I shared with him.

The ETP was hugely valuable due to the business plan materials and the Business Model Canvas that helped me define my ideal customers and how to find them.
