"“I had a wonderful experience with the class - learned so much and ready to apply for the grant. Did I get lucky being paired with Bob Kramer as my mentor. He is professional, highly intelligent, motivational, kind, persistent and skilled beyond my wildest dreams. He knows his stuff backwards, forwards, and inside and out. In addition, his emotional intelligence and people skills are top notch. Rare do you see this combination in one individual.” – Debra Gluskin, Owner

Debra Gluskin approached the Cal Coastal SBDC for assistance in starting her business via participating in the CA Dream Fund Training program. She learned about the program after viewing our on-demand webinar, “Overview of the CA Dream Fund (CDF) – How to access the startup training” in the spring of 2022.

Debra enrolled in CDF Cohort 3 startup training, attended all 6 classes, completed all the required homework and passed all quizzes at 100%. SBDC consultants provided her with 5 hours of 1:1 consulting on completing her business plan and preparing all the necessary documents to launch Sculpt, including signing a commercial lease to house her new business, and apply for the CDF grant. Sculpt is an aesthetics business providing body sculpting, body toning and facials supported with the newest cutting-edge technology called CRYOSKIN, and Debra is a certified Cytotechnician.

 Debra Gluskin successfully launched her business with 1 full-time worker and by investing a total of $20,000, including the $10,000 CDF grant she received.
