Success Story: Florida
- Florida SBDC Fort Lauderdale
- SBDC Counselor: Anil Chang, FSBDC International Trade Specialist
- Client: Surface Logix, SBDC client since 2012
“Anil and Parbatee were a great help to me and our business with our new export plan. I participated in the seven-week course to set up our program properly. I would highly recommend this program to businesses interested in export exposure.” – John Daly, Owner, Surface Logix
Impact of working with the SBDC: As part of the FSBDC Fort Lauderdale’s Export Marketing Plan recommendations, Daly participated an export trade mission to the Dominican Republic, using the Gold Key Service provided by the U.S. Commercial Service and scholarship funding provided by Enterprise Florida.
Daly also participated in the FSBDC Fort Lauderdale’s seven-week International Trade Certificate Program, one of a select number of NASBITE-accredited trade assistance programs in the world, and the only one in Florida.
As a result of the assistance received, Surface Logix has grown substantially and now has 10 full-time employees. Daly is optimistic that the company will be able to further grow its business and ultimately double sales for their multi-million dollar business.
