We cannot thank you both enough for the grant opportunity to meet with Vincent to discuss our business & the three-way forecast, it really couldn’t have come at a better time! 

The things we liked most about the whole experience;

  • The ease of applying for the grant.  It was a straightforward process, allowed us the opportunity to tell the business story, and wasn’t a convoluted process.

  • Vincent!  Vince is a wealth of knowledge, so much, so we have decided to continue working with him, we think his advice will benefit our business greatly.

  • The tangible outcome of the three-way forecast, we could have easily eaten up Vince’s time discussing business & asking questions, but through the structure of the grant provided, we were able to get a tangible outcome along with all the business advice! 

  • We would highly recommend it to any small business! The three-way forecast in itself is invaluable, throw in a bit of Vincent advice & mentorship, and it’s worth its weight in gold.

“Through the MEFSC grant, Vincent has provided an external, impartial view that we can use. We are so thankful for this. How we implement it, is the next challenge. Although on paper it seems so logical and simple, the initial steps will be mentally tough. We need to trust the system and allow the outcomes to prove that. As a result, confidence is built and what were once hurdles become stepping stones to the next challenge”
