"With no assets but a great idea and the passion to follow through, Community Futures was willing to take a chance on me. They were my first and greatest source of funding and I wouldn’t be here otherwise.
Participation in the Launch-a-preneur program in 2013 was a great kick-start, giving me the community resources and networks I needed to build confidence and my business plan.
Even when I experienced a lull in my business, Community Futures was there to help me through and continues to this day in providing ongoing advice and resources to keep me feeling supported and my doors open."
