Start Small Think Big
Start Small Think Big helps under-resourced entrepreneurs create thriving businesses in underserved areas so owners can build wealth for themselves, their families and communities. We do this by activating and engaging a top-tier network of professional volunteers who provide high-quality legal, financial and marketing services, at no cost.
We level the playing field by providing access to the skills, networks and markets small businesses need to survive and thrive. We help small businesses build assets for themselves and within their communities, and stimulate economic innovation and growth on underserved “Main Streets” across the country. 97% of the small businesses we serve are owned by people of color and/or women and 35% live below the federal poverty line.
In their first year with us, Start Small Think Big's businesses have an 87% survival rate and 57% see increases in their business revenue while supporting 470 jobs in target communities and generating over $3M in sales.
