iBec Creative

(Post: English)
"While a senior at the University of Southern Maine, Becky Stockbridge wrote a business plan."

She plans to start a Web and graphic design business for medical professionals, a group she found was in need of logos, brochures, and informative Web sites - and who also had the money to pay for them.

She got started in 2006 with a $4,200 grant from the Libra Future Funds, a Maine-based group that helps entrepreneurs under 25.

The Maine Center for Enterprise Development awarded her free office space for one year.

However, Stockbridge says she found it difficult to get through to the decision-makers in medical practices.

While she struggled to make contact, Stockbridge began designing Web sites and logos for other small businesses.

By 2007, she had more business clients than doctor clients and shifted her focus.

Last year the five-person company had about $225,000 in revenue and Stockbridge expects $350,000 in 2009.
