John first contacted the SBDC in 2017 requesting assistance from our consultants on how to start his own advertising firm – MODE Communications. Our advisors assisted John in creating a business plan and planning his overall growth strategy. Together, they completed the final business plan that John was able to use to obtain a local grant of $75,000. John started MODE Communications in December of 2018. Since then, he has invested over $175,000 in Owner Equity. John has had success over the past three years in the advertising business. Mode Communications specializes in text message marketing.
