Be a Micro-Mentor! Coach entrepreneurs at our next Speed Coaching event for small business owners in the Bay Area. Produced in partnership with Sam Adams’ Brewing the American Dream, Opportunity Fund provides loans and business advice to up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the food, beverage and hospitality industries.
Speed Coaching is a high-impact opportunity to help low-income small business owners get the benefit of free, expert business advice. By giving a few hours of your time on one evening, Coaches will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one and in small discussion groups with small business owners seeking advice from experts in various disciplines including accounting, communications, branding, marketing, packaging, creative, legal, and sales and distribution. This is an amazing opportunity for these aspiring and current small business owners to learn from you. And they are eager to meet you. By lending your expertise, you have the ability to impact the life of a small business owner who is working toward their business dream.
