Rudman Winchell Law Firm’s Carin Sychterz and Jonathan Bench, Attorney at Law, approached CEI’s Business Advisor Ashleigh Briggs for advice on how to create an entrepreneurial service for small businesses in the community. “We knew we wanted to create a program for entrepreneurs, and we wanted to make sure we did it right. It was important to understand what the needs are, so we offer a service that provides a value to the community,” said Syrchterz.
Briggs helped the team through the discovery phase of the new service.
“The advice and guidance from Ashleigh at CEI helped us break down the big idea into smaller pieces. She helped us approach the process in a new way, from a business perspective. With her help we determined how to deliver the best possible service to the most people.”-Carin Sychterz, Rudman Winchell
“As a business lawyer, I don’t often serve the small business community. This service will allow us to be accessible to our community,” said Bench. “Where we’ve had to send clients to Boston or New York, we will now be able to meet their needs here in Maine.”
The team hopes that the new entrepreneurial service will have an international reach to help clients in Canada, as well as in Maine.
