MeetGeraldine Awarded Loan from OBDC for Working Capital Expansion
Geraldine Covento and Lauren Messmer, serial entrepreneurs and co-founders of MeetGeraldine, the women-owned business strategy, marketing and design firm headquartered in Oakland, CA, have been awarded a loan from the Oakland Business Development Center (OBDC) to aid in the growth of their organization. The loan enables the dynamic pair the opportunity to delegate some of the operational tasks of the business to their growing team (now comprised of sixteen team members and continuing to grow!) and focus on networking and developing strategic partnerships.
“Landing this loan was made possible by having a solid business plan in place,” Geraldine shared. “Our own success has proven that writing a business plan is an invaluable step for business growth.”
