Impacting Diverse Entrepreneurs
Start Small Think Big is a nonprofit dedicated to advancing equity and inclusion in entrepreneurship by connecting small businesses with the resources and community they need to thrive.
We focus on partnering with BIPOC entrepreneurs, women, LGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs, immigrants, veterans, entrepreneurs with disabilities, low-income entrepreneurs, and formerly incarcerated entrepreneurs.
Due to incredibly high demand, 1:1 Marketing sessions are temporarily paused while we work to match folks with volunteers. We will continue to provide virtual marketing workshops and to keep updating our marketing resource guide to support your marketing needs, and our Legal and Finance programs have 1:1 sessions available.
We appreciate your patience as we work to provide the best service possible to those entrepreneurs currently waiting for marketing services!
