“It is truly an honor to be asked to participate in the exceptional programs NHADEC offers New Hampshire businesses,” comments Withee. “Businesses are the backbone of our economy. If we can help them grow and success by introducing them to specialty lending opportunities, then our economy as a whole can benefit.”
