Alaska Small Business Development Center

Aspire Business Solutions

Inspired to serve small and medium-sized businesses and health care providers in Alaska, Aspire Business Solutions, LLC, is locally owned and operated by Deborah Nyquist, Winnie Wong, and Micha Savage. Deborah, Winnie, and Micha left their positions within tribal healthcare to fully actualize their skills in project management, tribal healthcare leadership, operational improvement, and informational technology optimization. 

With more than 50 years of combined experience, they work to develop and maximize reimbursements, build their identity, and improve quality and service with a simple mission: To create adaptive solutions for individuals, businesses, and communities. The trailblazers envision the creation of successful and sustainable businesses, in turn, resulting in thriving communities throughout the state of Alaska.

Deborah, Winnie, and Micha worked with the Alaska Small Business Development Center (Alaska SBDC) in Soldotna to ensure they launched successfully. Their business advisor, Cliff Cochran shared about their dedication, “It has been a pleasure working with Deb, Winnie, and Micha. With their expertise in management, operations, and IT, among other things, they have become a valuable business resource for our community.  I’m looking forward to seeing the immediate and ripple effects of their great work across the peninsula.”

In discussing their journey, they shared, “When we met with Cliff in person at the SBDC office, we were reassured that we were on the right track in completing our startup tasks. We felt comfortable asking questions about our business plan. Cliff helped to demystify how to research our competition, develop our SWOT analysis and invited us to check back if and when we had questions. Cliff’s guidance on business loans and the process to obtain startup funding was informative and helpful. We appreciate that the SBDC website has a wealth of resources and links, but there is nothing like personalized and knowledgeable support at our local office.”

Open for business in June 2019, Aspire Business Solutions is located at 609 Marine Ave, Suite 150 in Kenai, Alaska. 

Aspire Business Solutions believes that each company, client, and community is unique and deserves customized solutions. Connect with Deborah, Winnie, and Micha via email, at (907) 513-9574, or on Facebook and Instagram. You can also register to book your complimentary initial consult at
