What entrepreneurs say about Main Street Launch

The loan allowed us to revamp the new place, set aside money we’d need to grow this new investment, purchase equipment, and help us expand our staff.
— Lancy Woo, owner of VIP Grooming
Our call to Main Street Launch was one of our first, when Wine Down was really just an idea,” remembers Jaime. “It was helpful to receive constructive feedback and understand exactly what we would need to do in order to get a loan. That first conversation helped set us up for success when we were ready for the loan.
— Wine Down, owners Sarah Burke-Garand and Jaime Hiraishi
The loan enabled me to shift from being a referral-based business to building a sales pipeline, and we generated over $600,000 in new business and projects this year. We’re on track to double the business over the next 36 months.
— Daniel Hernandez, Professional Computer Support
