SMALL BUSINESS SERVICES
A small business needs a big partner.
And we’re here to help.
Starting and maintaining a small business isn’t easy. That’s why we provide legal, finance, and marketing assistance to thousands of small business owners every year. We offer resources, events, and connect you to our network of volunteer professionals who provide the best legal, finance, and marketing services money can buy — except it’s free.
No catch. Just a community of people who want to help you, your business — and your community — to thrive.
AM I ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE FREE SERVICES?
We partner with small business owners in marginalized communities, including communities of color, women, LGBTQIA+ communities, immigrant communities, veterans, people with disabilities, people with low incomes (under 500% of Federal Poverty Guidelines), and formerly incarcerated individuals.
We serve small business owners who are currently operating and selling goods/services and can demonstrate recurring sales of at least $500 within the past three months. Businesses must also have less than $1M in revenue over the last 12 months. Applicants must have a household income under 750% Federal Poverty Guidelines, and the household must have less than $100,000 in assets.
We accept applications from small businesses located across all 50 states. *Please note that our legal services are only offered (with varying wait times) in the following states: NY, CA, DC, NJ, PA, MD, VA, WA, OR. Our virtual marketing and financial services are available to all eligible businesses.
