“When you start a business you don’t know what you need in terms of permits, licensing, and forms. The SBDC is a great guidance . . .” — Tammy Adams, co-owner, with sister Lorraine Guerra, of Majestic Estate, LLC.

Impact of working with the Iowa SBDC: The sisters took a business plan writing class offered by Janine Clover, director of the Southeastern SBDC in Burlington. With her guidance, they were able to put together a detailed business plan that they entered into the 2015 Des Moines County Business Plan Competition in May. Lorraine and Tammy were the overall winners of the competition and received a $5,000 seed capital grant intended to support their company’s start‐up costs.
