“During the dot-com collapse era, we were going through some very rough times and we reached out to EDC-VC for help, and they were able to give us a loan that allowed us to gradually recover and go on from there. All businesses can reach out and attend their seminars and get free help if they just bother to contact them. There’s a lot of help available to small businesses and I highly recommend that they use all of the resources that EDC-VC provides. We’re extremely grateful to EDC-VC for all of the help that they gave us.”

“In spite of high unemployment rates, the challenge as a business has always been to find good, talented individuals who really have the same passion about serving customers as we do. The resources programs that we got exposed to were incredibly helpful in not only identifying the right talent but also continuing to nourish that talent through educational and training programs. The program gives small businesses an opportunity to say, ‘Instead of outsourcing jobs, I’m going to give the opportunity to our local community individuals.’ We have had tremendous success from an employee standpoint with those that have come through as part of this program. Ventura County has been particularly helpful in terms of being able to attract talent.”
