Ronnie Biddle specializes in resurfacing: restoring chrome trim for automobiles, removing graffiti from concrete walls, and revitalizing wood for cottages and homes. His company, Biddle’s Media Blasting, does it all with eco-friendly blast media and abrasives, avoiding chemicals, reducing waste and disposal costs. Today Biddle’s Media Blasting services the entire lower peninsula of Michigan – but it wasn’t always that way.
After working with the Michigan Small Business Development Center (MI-SBDC) on his startup, Biddle was referred to the 90-Day Business Refinement cohort program. Business consultant Adrian Montague helped him with his business plan, marketing and sales, and referred him to partner organizations that were instrumental in helping him secure funding for his business.
“The cohort program was great for networking, and the referral from the MI-SBDC to the partner organizations for funding made all the difference. Now that I’ve got a business plan in place, it’s also easier to apply for an equipment loan if need be,” said Biddle.
