" “The training and support provided by the SBDC team helped me to both refine my focus on the big picture, and also to pay attention to the small, though critical details necessary for anyone starting a new business.” – Jason Higbee, Owner

Low Mass, LLC

Jason was interested in starting a business to develop and sell lightweight structural assemblies and design services. He was seeking help with legally starting his business. When he learned about the CA Dream Fund’s comprehensive technical training and the possibility of receiving seed funding, Jason was eager to enroll in the program.

 As a result of his participation in the Central CA SBDC Network’s CA Dream Fund Training and Grant program, and associated consulting from Cal Coastal SBDC, Jason started his new business in the summer of 2022. Through dedication to the pursuit of his passion and attention to market and customer feedback, he has successfully secured his first clients and is prepared to grow. Jason received a CA Dream Fund grant of $10,000 to support his new business start.
