Midtown Manhattan SBDC
In the spring of 2014, John visited the Baruch SBDC with a concept and a name - Scorpion Fitness. Scorpion Fitness would help its clients develop lean, fit, aesthetically balanced physiques by optimizing the 5 principle domains of fitness: strength, power, speed, core strength, and endurance. With the help of Business Advisor Jesse Karasin, John fine-tuned the details of his business plan and secured a loan from NYBDC for $475,000. Jesse and John went to work to identify a premier location near New York’s Madison Square Park. The SBDC and NYBDC provided all the support John needed to get through the lending and negotiating processes.
