Santa Cruz SBDCAptos, CA

"The SBDC has been incredibly instrumental in moving our business forward.  As a husband and wife team -each advisor brings clarity and insightful perspectives to our small two-person team.  Among many things, we are the most grateful for the successful strategic planning for our beta test, preparing for our online launch, and implementing systems to help target the right customers. Working with SBDC has dramatically changed how I approach my work at Legends of Rec for the better. Thank you Keith, Bryce, and Mary!"

Hollie & Jared Loson

Ben Lomond couple Hollie and Jared Loson have launched a successful basketball scorekeeping app. After experience in hackathons, and the idea for a fantasy sports league, the duo shifted their focus to the scorekeeping resource for recreational basketball leagues.

Hollie has been working closely with SBDC advisors in general business consulting, marketing, social media, and SEO. Their app has recently been implemented with Santa Cruz Parks & Recreation and Los Gatos Parks & Recreation basketball leagues with much success.
