The most rewarding way to do business is to have as many inside advocates as you can.  Savoca functions as our clients’ inside advocate with a wide range of diversity-sensitive purchasers in both the private and public sectors.  We regularly help our clients identify what organizations they are a good fit for, who they need to know at those organizations and what that person’s key concerns are.  Simply put, Savoca Enterprises was founded to help woman-owned businesses connect the dots to make business opportunities happen. 

We help our clients understand the magnitude of the supplier diversity universe, along with both the opportunities and pitfalls it presents.  We collaborate closely with them to chart a course of smart, strategic moves that eliminates the overwhelm that is a frequent by-product of starting a new entity.  Working with Savoca, clients experience increased visibility, greater credibility and a faster, more direct path to profitable business relationships.
