Amit Shrivastava, Inspired Health Care

‘”Seymour Stoller and Jennifer Lang, our mentors, have been instrumental in providing us excellent advise on hiring and retaining quality employees. They provided great ideas every time we came to them with problem as we did not have any experience building business and managing employees. As first time entrepreneurs, we were unsure about many things and it was very comforting to know that SCORE mentors are on our side and we can bounce of our ideas and get unbiased advice.”
— Amit Shrivastava and Poonam Gupta, owners of Inspired Care Home Health
