“The Wharton SBDC is really the go-to place for smart analytical minds that can help businesses understand and act on their opportunities. I’ve worked with the SBDC in several of my companies, and their recommendations were always on point, and consistent with improving the long-term performance of the businesses.”
-Doug Alexander, Co-Founder and President, Internet Capital Group
“This project helped us to identify the white space in our industry, and provided an important input to our strategic planning process, positioning us for future growth.”

“We are huge fans of the SBDC. We’ve asked the students tough questions and they’ve returned to us with even tougher questions. I couldn’t ask for more from a group of consultants. I’ll use the consulting services of the SBDC as many times as the leadership there will allow.”
- Ryan Davis, President, Philly.com
“The Wharton SBDC teams approach the engagement extremely professionally and conduct sophisticated work with enthusiasm that is very enjoyable to be around. Additionally, they bring resources to the table – access to reports, data, and the expertise of the SBDC staff. We are now on our third consulting engagement – both the process and the product have helped us move our early stage cleantech venture forward.”
- Emily Landsburg, CEO, BlackGold Biofuels
“Wharton SBDC gave us the evidence—the outsider’s view—and caused us to put structure and an actual plan around our thoughts for a new product…this helps the partner we are trying to enlist—as well as investors for our third round of capital.”
- Dor Skuler, VP Business Development, Safend Inc.
“The consulting team applied tremendous strategic, industry and technical analytics into the business problem and provided insight into some core issues that our company faces. The analysis crystallizes for us what we have been seeing in our business and provides us with an objective evaluation of the opportunity and growth path.”
- James Maxim, President, MaximTrak Technologies
“Our engagement opened our eyes to what we were not accounting for in the past when we were doing a project, and how to price . That’s huge!...it’s going to make a big difference in our profitability.”
