Alicia Falango launched Alicia K Designs in 2004, but she’d been working on events as a side gig for the previous two years as she worked full-time to support her passion project. Now, Alicia K Designs is a boutique full-service event design and production company, capable of developing and executing events of all sizes from start to finish.
“When Alicia came to Main Street Launch, she had already been turned down by traditional banks. ‘I felt like the banks did not understand my business or what I would be able to achieve with some capital,’ Alicia reflects. ‘I started to doubt myself and my business. When I was referred to Main Street Launch by the San Francisco SBDC it was really important for me. Having Main Street listen to me and work with us gave me more confidence that I did have a successful business.'”
