Lange worked with the Cornerstone Alliance
Small Business Team to transform his idea into a functioning business. He expressed gratitude for those at Cornerstone who helped him get the business up and running.
And they, in turn, had good things to say about Lange. Margaret Adams, Women’s Business Center Program Manager and Business Developer at Cornerstone Alliance worked with Lange from the beginning. "Roger was very focused and organized," says Adams. "He worked to accomplish what was needed to launch his consulting service and had goals in place to make them happen."
