|Dade City, Florida — The Busy Buddy, a business support services company, announced today that it is moving into the SMARTstart Dade City Incubator located in the Dade City Business Center. The move is part of The Busy Buddy’s strategic plan to grow the business and develop a strong presence in Pasco County.
SMARTstart is an innovative facility-based program where companies work in a collaborative environment with other small businesses. SMARTstart residents have access to technical support coupled with the ability to network with other businesses, local organizations and community partners.
“I live in Pasco County so it made perfect sense to establish my business here. When I learned about the SMARTstart program, I was excited about the great opportunities and resources available to help take my business to the next level,” said Kellye Dash, president of The Busy Buddy.
SMARTstart, managed by the Pasco Economic Development Council, Inc. is the first program of its kind in Pasco County. It has received strong support from the City of Dade City, Dade City Business Center, Florida High Tech Corridor Council, Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, Pasco County Board of County Commissioners, Pasco-Hernando State College, Saint Leo University, USF Connect, USF Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Service Core of Retired Executives (SCORE), and Tampa Electric Peoples Gas (TECO).
Dash added, “It’s wonderful to have a program where a small business, like mine, can network with other small businesses and participate in workshops and seminars geared to help my business grow. I’m confident that this move will root me further into the community that I live, play and now work. It is the answer to my prayers and I want to ensure it exceeds the expectations of those who believe in and support its mission.”
