Member Entrepreneur of the Month
Abbott - ASSIST-U.S.
| Carolyn Abbott
September 2007 Update:
Our company, ASSIST-U.S., is going strong. We
recently hired our Marketing and Sales Director, who officially starts on
Monday (10/1/07). We placed a deposit on our first aircraft in early June
and anticipate making a second deposit next month. Our executive team is
rounded out now and we are in the processing of finalizing our presentation
to potential investors. I still pinch myself almost daily but it definitely
does seem to be coming closer and closer to reality. We hope to begin flying
our first missions next August.
We are starting a new feature to promote
businesses of DEC Connection members. Our first feature is on Carolyn Abbott
and her business, ASSIST-U.S., who are also seeking to hire qualified staff.
