I wish that I had been in contact with Business Link sooner. It would have been helpful to know that these resources were available, and saved me a lot of time & frustration from navigating the sea of misinformation on the internet. David’s knowledge and patience with my questions were invaluable.

Business Link is an incredible service that helped me decide how to register my company, clarified some issues around Trademarks, and provided links to a lot of other great resources. I’m very grateful for the support that I’ve received already, and the ongoing support that is available. It’s been a key component to helping me move forward as a complete newbie in small business development and ownership.

Kind, professional, and helpful. The response I got from Business Link came much faster than I anticipated, and the content within the response helped me take immediate action towards some research goals I had. Overall- an accessible and valuable resource.
