Client Profile! Finding a formula for growth
Beattie Sturgill, Emma Sturgill, and Prashant Singh co-founded PurSolutions in 2015. Their focus was the manufacture of proteins used in cancer and disease research. In order to make sure their business proved as successful as their science, they decided to consult with the Central Virginia SBDC.
“In 2015 we went to see Betty Hoge, Director of the Central Virginia SBDC in Charlottesville,” Beattie says. “We needed help navigating the small business world.” In Betty Hoge, the PurSolutions partners found both a coach and a counselor. The SBDC provided a valuable third-party review of the business.
After working with the SBDC for three years, Beattie and his partners are confirmed fans. “I tell other business associates about the SBDC,” he concludes. “Even if they’ve been in business for years, I still recommend a visit to the SBDC. It’s like having a checkup with your doctor — it’s a good business practice.”
