When I started the Fast Trac program, I was
thrilled to find out that Derrick was one of the facilitators. Derrick
showed up ready to engage and instruct and challenge our minds. He has a
charismatic way of relating to students and I consider myself lucky to
have had Derrick as an instructor. I've taken a number of courses at
[NYC Business Solutions] and they've all offered relevant, valuable
knowledge helpful to anyone starting or running a small business. For
me, the courses that were facilitated by Derrick in particular, were the
most informative, engaging and valuable ones.

Derrick B Webster, is one of the most
creative, informative and meticulous design/ marketing experts that I've had the pleasure to learn from. Derrick's attributes on fund
raising, and sealing the deal, has made him a vital part of the
Kauffman Fasttrac New Venture program. Derrick is a wonderful
facilitator and consultant and it has been a wonderful experience to
learn from him.

As a FastTrac NewVenture participant, I
appreciated Derrick's clear and focused approach to explaining business
principles. He also went "above and beyond", introducing us to
additional frameworks that are helping me to better think through how to
operate my business.

[D. Bernard Webster's] Business Plan Course was one of the best business
courses I ever had. Mr. Webster inspired me with both real world
practices and business planning knowledge. I felt so ready and happy to
learn new things every time I stepped into the classroom. He was just
like the practice professors from my Syracuse University graduate
program, elaborating theories with personal hands on experiences. From
building businesses ground zero, from marketing, operation to finance
