Donate now to help communities thrive, one entrepreneur at a time.

Owning a small business helps people exit poverty and build wealth. This is particularly true for those in our community who are typically most marginalized from the mainstream economy – immigrants, minorities, women.

The businesses that Start Small supports, and the entrepreneurs behind those efforts, they're among society's most disadvantaged and vulnerable. We currently leverage $1 million dollars in organizational funding to provide our businesses with pro bono legal, financial and marketing support valued at over $5 ½ million dollars. And we're the only organization in the country that provides entrepreneurs with this kind of comprehensive support designed to ensure business success. And that's exactly what happens – within the first 12 months, our businesses see their revenues increase 25%.

"Start Small Think Big is without a doubt the most meaningful help I have ever received. It has literally made my life and dreams possible. I tell everyone I know how valuable Start Small is as a resource – there's nothing quite like it. If I enjoy any success in my new business... if I can create jobs for others... if I can give back to my community... I will have Start Small to thank. I thank all those who support this service. Your time and money are being well used and are greatly appreciated."
