FinBee TAC

Advisor: George Kleeb

While studying business at Great Basin College in Elko, NV, Keegan Quintana devised a plan to start an environmental consulting service, utilizing drone imaging and multispectral sensors to conduct geographical information surveys, analyze crop health and the health of vegetation on federal lands, and visualize wildlife habitat. Quintana had an idea and a market, but was unsure exactly how to get his new business venture off the ground. Luckily, his professor at Great Basin College was George Kleeb, a long-time Nevada SBDC advisor with a wealth of business knowledge and connections to regional resources.

Quintana met with Nevada SBDC advisor George Kleeb for the first time in February 2023 to discuss business planning, financing, and marketing strategy. Kleeb assisted in developing and finalizing the business plan, brainstorming ways to expand marketing presence, and informed Quintana of financing available through Rural Nevada Development Corporation (RNDC) and other options. Quintana ultimately applied for a loan with RNDC to jumpstart his business.

With Kleeb’s assistance, Quintana received a small business loan for $61,000 from RNDC. He has decided to designate $1,500 of that amount to marketing his new business, FinBee TAC, including buying signs to advertise on his pickup truck, creating professionally designed capability statements, and social media postings. Quintana also received an audience with representatives from Nevada Department of Agriculture, Nevada Department of Wildlife, U.S. Forrest Service, and Bureau of Land Management. 

On May 2nd, 2023, FinBee TAC worked with the Utah Department of Wildlife to visualize a wild bird habitat. Recently, FinBee TAC have expanded their geospatial services to the civil sector, including providing oblique imagery for local governments. Quintana has also expanded cloud-based software capabilities to allow county personnel to access imagery and filter different material types like roads, wood structures, steel structures, and masonry structures.
