The CALincentives team identified and executed on two key incentives that are making a substantial impact to our business and growth in California. We couldn’t have done it without them.
The experience we had with CALincentives was phenomenal. Alex’s unmatched knowledge and experience with CAEATFA was clear every step of the way. Alex and his team did the heavy lifting and we can’t imagine how we could have done this without them!
The team at CALincentives was a pleasure to work with. The tax incentives they secured for Vivotein will have an immediate and direct benefit to our bottom line.
