Diane and the NWIRC network helped me focus my business plan and financials into a format that I could present to potential investors. With renewed focus and a thought out presentation, I held the confidence and information that lead me to financial investors. While my business grew, NWIRC continued to provide advice on how to find an accountant or how to start another business! It has been a privilege to be part of NWIRC’s enterprise program and I plan to continue utilizing the resources NWIRC provides as my business demands.
