​“Working with the MBDA has dramatically increased the exposure and validity of my COVID-19 response business pivot. The opportunities that were presented by the MBDA allowed me to attain new NAICS Codes to add under my business profile, working with the MBDA and the showcase has increased my traction and visibility which is has added to the queue of PR and marketing efforts organically. ​

​Without the assistance of Cassie, Frank, Mariana and others the past 4 months wouldn't have been as momentous. I have been in appreciation for the dedication and hard work from the MBDA team, and I look forward to seeing more businesses take the chance and make the time to work with the MBDA.”​
