How we can help... an example
Stinson Studios creates hand-carved, unique sculptures, bowls, and cutting boards from local trees. After growing as much as they could with the tools they had, they needed to find safer, more effective tools to continue to expand their business.
Our Business Coach connected Stinson's with students at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. They designed a tool that improved productivity and safety, allowing the the company to expand their markets internationally.
People around the world are now finding out about Stinson's Studio products. Major high-end chains now carry their brand, and several celebrities own Stinson work, including Stephen Spielberg, William Shatner, and Carrie Underwood.
Let us connect your with our partners, who can advise, inspire and direct you on your business journey.
