BusinessAdvising.org is a nonprofit small business accelerator harnessing the model made famous by venture capital-backed tech startups (access to working capital, expert business advice, and extensive networks) to benefit businesses on “Main Street”.
Since 1998, businesses working with us, on average, have seen their revenues increase by 25% on average, and added jobs at 10 times the national level. We’ve empowered hundreds of small businesses to create tens of thousands of jobs.
The core of this program is you – the small business owner and volunteer advisor. Your commitment to be successful and to this community is what delivers real value for all.
This toolkit is intended to support your hard work by providing some structure, templates, tips, best practices, resources, and lessons learned to set your advising match on the right path from Day One.
