My passion is helping startups launch and grow their entrepreneurial businesses and keep them from the dark side!

- Guidance borne of experience; experience that you can leverage.


I'm Lonnie Sciambi and I'm the Entrepreneur's Yoda. My passion is helping entrepreneurs and small business owners grow while keeping them from the dark side. Every small business has challenges or faces uncertainty at different times.

Typical Startup Challenges

At startup, it can be how to find the right partner or co-founder; or how to find the capital you need to grow your business beyond its earliest stages.

Typical Small Business Challenges

As a business matures, what got you to one revenue level won't necessarily get you to the next. You can't grow today's business on the way you did things two years ago, last year or even last month. Growth requires change. And sometimes change requires a new look. That's where Yoda comes in.

The assistance I provide, whether through my products and services or, in person, as an advisor, is based on hard-won experience. For over 35 years, I have seen entrepreneurship and small business from every conceivable angle - started them, sold them, turned them around, raised money for them, invested in them, advised and mentored them.

You won't get any catchy buzzwords, theories "du jour" or consultant-speak. just results! Anybody can plan. I help small businesses execute.

No "one size fits all" philosophy, just targeted advice that helps owners address their specific issues and continue to move their business forward.

Be that mentoring, strategic alternatives for growth, help with under-performing operations or guidance for realizing the value of their hard work through an exit, the Entrepreneur's Yoda is here to help.

"His experience spans many different areas that are necessary for a company to be successful. ... he is a great listener, as well as offers advice that is practical and has realistic chances of succeeding."
