Pacific Community Ventures has been working hard to stay available to small and minority-owned businesses throughout this crisis, and in bringing together companies and organizations invested in the success and resilience of small businesses across the United States. We are proud to have partnered with Kaiser Permanente to build the Small Business Support Circle, now launching on Labor Day — the six-month anniversary of the start of the COVID-fueled economic crisis — to show our increased support for those still struggling to stay in business and thrive again.
The growing list of companies and organizations who have joined to help us launch the Small Business Support Circle is led by Kaiser Permanente. It includes ICIC, eBay, DoorDash, Union Bank, EBALDC, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Comcast NBC Universal. We’re also excited to partner with Black-led organizations that serve business owners of color, like 1863 Ventures, The Wisdom Fund, HOPE Credit Union, LISC, the Western Regional Minority Supplier Diversity Council, and others to bring this pro bono service to small business owners nationwide.
Members of the PCV Small Business Support Circle are getting millions of dollars of free advice into the hands of job-creating small business owners by leveraging and scaling the unique BusinessAdvising.org pro bono advising platform to provide small businesses the support they need to survive and thrive, empowering workers, and the communities they serve nationwide.
