Ecosystem Building: San Francisco Bay Area

Because we understand that no entrepreneur can thrive in a vacuum, we are collaborating with local partners to create an ecosystem map on Venturize of area business assistance centers, community development financial institutions and other groups currently available to help underrepresented South Bay entrepreneurs. Through this work, we have taken key steps to strengthen and connect the local small business support ecosystem so that current and aspiring small business owners can access the resources they need to thrive. We complement Venturize with real, face-to-face interaction between partners and entrepreneurs.
