EXISTING SMALL BUSINESS
Communities outside of major metros are often overlooked and ignored. The effect trickles down to hopeful entrepreneurs and existing small business owners that have limited access to community, resources and collaboration to grow their business.
The SBSC uses a ground-up strategy supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses for long-term economic and community development by leveling the playing field of entrepreneurship.
We foster workforce ecosystems to generate a pool of talent to build teams for small businesses and entrepreneurs in local communities across a variety of industry sectors.
We collaborate with community-based organizations to empower them and their members with access to a one-stop, web-based-portal where small businesses gain unprecedented access to the expertise needed to grow their business.
Community-based membership organizations include Spark Saratoga & Innovate 518 Innovation Hub.
