"We could not have done it without the help of RDS. The development process is complicated and full of pitfalls. Paul Fields' understanding of the process and his skills in financial analysis, concept review and business plan writing were invaluable to us...In addition to receiving a loan commitment within five days, the business plan prepared by RDS serves as a company development and planning guide."
