We believe that entrepreneurship results in increased innovation and sustained economic growth for everyone, particularly those most marginalized. By investing in the underserved, we create jobs and value for our society.


We help 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.


Who We Serve

Start Small targets entrepreneurs and small business owners who either live in or sell goods or services in underserved communities in New York City and the Bay Area, and who possess the fundamental building blocks to create and sustain viable businesses but lack the resources to access professional legal, financial and marketing expertise.
