America’s progress has been driven by entrepreneurs who think big, take risks and work hard. From the storefront shops that anchor downtown to high-tech industries to large scale retail and service businesses – small businesses are the backbone of our economy. In the US, 28 million small businesses create nearly two out of three jobs in our nation’s economy; they provide jobs, spur economic growth and support local communities.
Lighthouse Strategic Solutions is a small but mighty company who supports many other businesses within our community. Seamless, to the point where outsiders don't event know they are consulting, these professionals provide a variety of services to help our other local businesses stay running smoothly and efficiently - something that is very important to our economy.
