Our ability to make an impact on small businesses depends heavily upon the work put in by our amazing volunteers. Last year alone, our entrepreneurs each received 40+ hours of one-on-one pro bono assistance, valued at over $25,000!

There are various opportunities to volunteer within our small business programs:

Our Small Business Financial Program is currently recruiting volunteers to assist entrepreneurs with a variety of needs, such as creating financial projections or statements, answering business tax questions, assisting with business valuation, and much more!  

Our Market Access Program is currently recruiting volunteers to assist entrepreneurs with a range of marketing challenges, including: strategic marketing plans, social media strategy, search engine optimization, professional photography, brand assessments! If you're interested in either of these opportunities, please fill out our volunteer application form

Our Legal Program partners with law firms to provide pro bono cases to its attorneys. Those looking for pro bono cases should contact the pro bono professionals at their law firm to get involved. 


Start Small hosts fellowships for recent law school graduates, including Skadden and Equal Justice Works fellowships. Please email us at hello@startsmallthinkbig.org for more information about fellowship opportunities. 

Marketing Program Fellowship

The Start Small Marketing and Sales Program assists small business owners with a range of marketing and sales needs. On the marketing end, our aim is to assist small business owners in building a marketing infrastructure for their business (a brand identity guide, marketing collateral, digital presence), and for more advanced businesses, support them in developing a marketing strategy for their business (SEO, Online Advertising, Website Audits, and Strategic Marketing Plans) by connecting entrepreneurs to marketing experts who can assist them for FREE. One the sales side, we aim to identify new and varied sales opportunities that can help our businesses increase their revenue and support their readiness for various distribution channels.
