Why Small Business Mentoring?
Small business ownership has been a pathway to the middle class for generations, and continues to be a crucial tool for building wealth and community self-determination. Building a successful small business involves overcoming many challenges, and it’s even harder if you’re new to the country or don’t have money from your family to help you get started.
PCV’s BusinessAdvising.org platform connects Main Street businesses with the same tools and resources that drive bigger companies to success: pairing an entrepreneur with an expert business advisor. If we help empower small business owners to increase their competitiveness while at the same time creating quality jobs with better wages, then every community and worker in America benefits.
Small businesses with a mentor succeed at twice the national average. In fact, small businesses that work with a mentor through our award–winning platform grow their revenues by 20% on average, and create jobs for working people at ten times the national rate.

PCV’s BusinessAdvising.org platform can also give your entire organization a turnkey solution to offer skills-based volunteering to your staff, mentoring and advising services to your clients, or to supplement an existing mentorship program with industry- or discipline-specific advising.
