We are very fortunate to have a great relationship with Northland SBDC. As our business navigates expansion, purchasing a new facility, and hiring new employees, she always has resources to bring to the table to help us!

Thank you to the Northland SBDC for all of your help getting our small business started. The amount of knowledge and help that came from working with you was truly incredible. If you are looking for help with your small business look no further!

Matt Groth

Just a note to say thanks for keeping us all updated. You far exceed what others are doing. Nancy and I applied for the EIDL right away, and funds were dispersed this week. It’s a nice cushion to have with the amount of uncertainty. I would not have applied instantly without your guidance. Thank you very much, and have a great day!

Micheline

I wanted to take the time to say how much I appreciated working with you. You taught me a lot. Thank you very much!
