"The MSBDC acts as a coach to identify your vision and to make sure all of your goals are clear and obtainable. They are very professional, knowledgeable and give great direction in all areas of business. They were extremely helpful with the projections for my business plan. With assistance from the MSBDC, we went from a 2,000 square foot salon to a 10,000 square foot salon. Thank you to the highly educated coaches. I thank you Massachusetts Small Business Development Center." ~ Paul DiGrigoli
