Inclusive Growth Toolkit for Business Service Organizations

Small Business Majority facilitates ecosystem building work by co-directing the Chicago Inclusive Growth Coalition (CIGC) alongside Allies for Community Business (formerly known as Accion in Illinois and Northwest Indiana). As part of this work, Small Business Majority facilitates impact measurement for local business assistance providers and reviews policy efforts and program investments to improve small business services in underserved neighborhoods. A key component of this effort includes the development and dissemination of the Inclusive Growth Toolkit for Business Service Organizations. This is a set of sensible measures, templates and guidance for non-profit business service organizations to help them assess the progress and impact of their services in traditionally under-resourced communities.
