Program Experiences

“I was thoroughly impressed with Revby and would encourage every small business owner to explore how they can help. Alex at Revby helped me dive deeper than I had previously into a wide range of metrics and numbers that were both assuring and eye opening as they helped us become more efficient and better prepare for the future. Absolutely loved working with them!”-Todd Trulli, Owner of George Henry’s Restaurant in Warrensburg, Warren County

"Lake Champlain-Lake George Planning Board's SBTA Program has provided tremendous opportunities to assist me with establishing my consulting practice. The initial application process was fast and easy! I've been paired with a phenomenal firm called Revby that is working with me to fine tune my business plan, make my website more business oriented and is currently working with me on my marketing plan. I would highly recommend entrepreneurs engage with the Lake Champlain-Lake George Planning Board's SBTA Program. It's a great resource and learning experience." - Marilyn Rivers, Principal of River Risk Consulting, LLC in Queensbury, Warren County
