We are extremely lucky to work with terrific community partners in both NYC and the Bay Area. In New York, we refer entrepreneurs to Neighborhood Trust Financial Partners for personal financial counseling services. In the Bay Area, we work closely with the San Francisco Economic Development Alliance (www.sfeda.org), a collaboration of 18 nonprofits in the small business space, all of whom work together to support entrepreneurship in different ways (by providing technical assistance support, incubator space, funding, etc.).
It is also important to note that our organizational success depends upon an active and inspired group of legal, financial and marketing volunteers. This past year, we worked with over 1300 volunteers, who provided over $10 million in pro bono support to our clients!. We are very lucky to have such a skilled group of corporate and individual volunteers who work with us, and support our clients’ growth.
