Making Needed Connections
Seizing the opportunity to leverage technology to make connections and respond to a global crisis
Small Business Needs Support
The Small Business School Challenge was conceived to support SMBs in crisis due to COVID-19 and the associated economic fallout.
MBA Students Need Exposure
MBA students were simultaneously experiencing a lower quality educational experience and in a position to gain valuable work experience while doing something positive for their community.
Everyone Needs Virtual Solutions
The SBSC team and events are designed to connect SMBs, MBAs, mentors, and sponsors in a 100% virtual environment to maximize opportunities for impact.
We all need Main Street America to win.
We envision a world in which small business innovation and strategy is available to all.
Even beyond the COVID-19 crisis, small business success drives our economy. Yet many MBA curriculums don't have the capacity to include small business exposure on such an intimate level.
By providing hands-on consulting experience in a very real small business environment, the SBSC adds an invaluable experience to an MBA student who may have entrepreneurial aspirations or wish to work in an industry that supports SMBs.
