SSCP has does such a great job in terms of not only working with the public sector just as the city [of Saratoga Springs] has needed you but the private sector as well.
We were still at that stage where we didn’t know what we didn’t know about running a golf course. We were hoping we could get some direction and some ideas that would propel us in the right direction and allow us to concentrate on specific things that would be meaningful. They had a major impact on us. They gave us some very sound, practical advice in terms of how to develop the park.
Saratoga Spring Water Company’s experience with the SSCP team was an entirely positive one. Not only did they bring a level of commitment and dedication to the project, but they helped to identify and flesh-out both strengths and weaknesses in our business strategy. Having an objective perspective allowed us to think more broadly about the topics essential for growing our business and the SSCP team was the catalyst for this change.
Thank you very much for the strategic plan that the SSCP team completed for our Habitat for Humanity affiliate. The plan is very comprehensive and includes the budget, staffing, organizational structure, and partnership elements that will lead to successful growth. The depth of research, comparative analysis, and level of understanding about Habitat are very impressive. The plan provided both actionable information and served to motivate us. The Board of Directors appreciates the time invested in the project and has already started taking action to implement the team’s recommendations. The SSCP is a valuable partnership element between Skidmore and the local community. Thank you for partnering with us and we look forward to working with Skidmore on other projects in the future.
Working with the Skidmore students from SSCP was an incredibly positive experience for us at The Inn at Saratoga. Meeting with the students each week encouraged us to set aside time to reflect on our business model and strategize how we wanted to improve and grow. The students showed professionalism and maturity and offered an insightful and academic prospective on ways The Inn could remain competitive in the hospitality market. We continue to refer to an impressive consultancy report provided by the students. I highly recommend the Skidmore Saratoga Entrepreneurial Partnership. I believe any local business would find great value from participation in this program.
