We recently engaged JSL to find us suppliers for a crucial component of our product. Jenney kept us in the loop during her investigation and found us multiple potential suppliers. Instead of spending time blindly making cold calls and fruitlessly sifting through bad leads on the internet, we were able to spend those hours focused on our most important goal - getting our business off the ground. We’re looking forward to working with JSL again in the not-so-distant future.
