As a graduate of Utah Valley University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management, Shaun joined the Orem SBDC in October of 2012 to head-up the Eagle Mountain Business Resource Center & Business Incubator Program. Shaun brings to the SBDC nearly 10 years of personal business ownership, along with a great passion for teaching and assisting other business owners in succeeding.
“My goal is to help business owners avoid many of the pitfalls in starting, launching and growing a business. Much of what is learned in business can only be learned in the doing of it, and I hope to convey as much of that as possible to help people do things in the right order and succeed quickly”.
Shaun specializes in product/service validation, marketing development, early stage capital infusion, pitch presentations, product development, financial analysis, business plan/model creation, branding, and employee management. While at the SBDC, Shaun has helped develop several training programs and occasionally volunteers his time as a guest lecturer at UVU.
Over the last 2.5 years with the SBDC, Shaun has worked with over 300 local businesses ranging from small home-based businesses, large retail operations with brick & mortar locations, to high-tech startups. Among those businesses, he’s successfully helped local business owners raise over $2MM in early stage capital, create 75 new jobs, increase revenues by $4.5 MM dollars, and start more than 20 new businesses in Utah County.
“Working at the SBDC has been the most rewarding experience of my professional career. Helping people make their dreams of business ownership a reality is an exceptional feeling. My goal is to act as a road map and problem solver for people who are hungry to create meaning and value in the community.”
