We're so grateful that the City provided funds that businesses in Chelsea can improve their signage and we’re pleased to the bilingual assistance that the Chelsea Business Foundation gave us throughout the process of updating our brand. They’re friendly, helpful and professional. We can see the improvements in our business.

I want to mention the importance of the technical assistance the Foundation, through Chispa Biz Lab, gave me helping to create a financial plan, business plan that was more realistic and gave not only my funders confidence but also will serve as a guide for my business going forward.
