The Small Business School Challenge was conceived to support SMBs in crisis due to COVID-19 and the associated economic fallout. 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.
Why It Matters
Small businesses create 2/3 (64%) of all new jobs in the USA. Even beyond the COVID-19 crisis, small business success drives our economy. We all need Main Street America to win.
Each 48-hr challenge brings together 600 MBAs from 15 top business schools to support 200 SMBs with customized strategic planning and design thinking.
