lienwaivers.io, Sioux City, chosen for Small Business of the Month Award
AMES, Iowa – America’s SBDC Iowa (SBDC) is pleased to announce that lienwaivers.io of Sioux City, is the winner of the SBDC’s statewide July Business of the Month Award.
lienwaivers.io is a platform to manage construction payments, and was formed in January 2016 after the founders connected at a Sioux City business networking event. The founders worked in different industries, and came together to build a comprehensive technology solution to the lien waiver and payment process for construction projects.
Since their launch, lienwaivers.io has steadily added customers to their platform, working with more than 22,000 contractors nationwide. They have also grown their team, including some of the founders’ spouses. Says founder Geoff Arnold, “When you are bootstrapping a business, everyone needs to be doing at least two or three jobs.”
Friends and mentors pointed lienwaivers.io to the programs and grants available through SBDC and other state and local organizations to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. They have worked with Western Iowa Tech SBDC Director Todd Rausch since forming the business. Geoff said, “lienwaivers.io thanks SBDC for their help providing resources and knowledge to local businesses. They’ve helped us discover valuable competitions and grants, and introduced us to other groups and individuals who can help us build our business. SBDC is a great resource for the small business and startup community of Northwest Iowa.”
