Testimonial

“Our work with Jody Parker and his team at Voyage West Consulting aimed to build out the business plan, strategy and timeline in order to achieve investment funding and get our manufacturing startup off the ground. Feedback from lending institutions and investors was extremely positive stating how thorough and precise the work was. We were thrilled when Jody and his team’s support resulted in achieving institution and investor funding within a few months of working with them. That was beyond our expectations in terms of financing and the speed with which we accomplished our goal.

What we appreciated most about working with Jody and his team was their ability to work from concept through to financial projections and deliver well beyond original expectations.

We have retained Voyage West as a continued trusted advisor to help guide us on our journey to success.”
