Ohio MBDA Business Center
GTB Advisors has been a high value and trusted resource for our team at the Ohio Minority Business Development Agency. We have benefited significantly from the strategic guidance, extensive relationships and introductions provided since the 2021 launch of our MBDA center. GTB Advisors has also been an excellent and reliable resource for helping us to identify numerous alternative funding and economic recovery sources for our growth stage MBEs.
Greater Cleveland Partnership | COSE
In looking for a consultant to research access to capital sources, GTB Advisors came highly recommended by some of our peers, which is something we always look for in a consultant. From our first conversation about the project, the team at GTB displayed a deep understanding of our goals, the market, the industry, and the landscape that we needed them to research for us. Once granted the contract, the team at GTB kept us well-informed of their work and progress, they were always prompt in responding, and most importantly – they delivered more than the minimum than we expected for this project. I couldn’t be happier with their work, and I look forward to using them again in the future.
