“The most enriching part of the IMPACCT experience for me was the personal attention that the counselors offer. They are available to answer all questions and give real hands-on help. The connections you make, the people you meet, and the educational workshops are invaluable in opening a business in the community. IMPACCT is the hand you need to make your small business ideas turn into a reality!”
– Daniel Salk,
Participant in RUG and Small Business Workshops
