Kathleen and Andy Dangelo had a dream of bringing a bit of Napa Valley to Ohio, but they didn’t know how to make their dream a reality. They reached out to the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Lakeland Community College, and advisors helped them put together a business plan. That helped them land funding from banks, leading to the opening of Sapphire Creek Winery & Gardens in Chagrin Falls.

The no-cost counseling available from the SBDCs’ Certified Business Advisors can make a big difference. If you’re a small business owner planning to apply for a loan or you need business advice, reach out to your local SBDC. To learn more, visit sbdc.development.ohio.gov.
