How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?
It has been such an incredible help! Our mentor is extremely knowledgeable and has helped us grow at a quick, but reasonable pace. He has helped us a lot with strategic planning, financing options, financials, and overall growth. We absolutely love meeting with him and will continue to do so for as long as we can!
Please describe the specific ways that your business has been successful and how it will grow in the next year.
Our business has been successful because we have found a way to solve a problem with mental health accessibility and have found innovative and creative approach to mental health with college students. We do a lot of market research on what students are looking for in a mental health office and our offices operate differently than any other mental health facility that I have seen. For example, our branding is Apple-esk and we have a very hip, minimalist style. From the light blue walls, to the modern furniture, to playing Spotify in our waiting rooms, having therapy dogs, and creating college student based workshops (such as sex and relationships, navigating identity, etc) and events (movie nights, yoga, wellness events).
