Participate in the Small Business School Challenge!
October 1, 2020
The deadline to apply to participate in the second Small Business School Challenge, a national virtual business innovation event pairing real small business owners with teams of MBA students to create new strategies to succeed, has been extended through October 7th.
Ideal applicants are small business owners in any industry with 3-30 employees who could benefit from strategy and support to improve their current business and overcome the challenges they’re facing.
Business owners from our May event rated the SBSC 9.4/10 and have shared that implementing the ideas and strategies their teams created meant hiring back staff, launching new products or services, growing their digital sales channels, and expanding into new markets, even during the challenging summer months.
The second Small Business School Challenge event takes place during 48 hours from Oct 15-17th, and more than 400 MBAs from 10+ top business schools, including UC Berkeley - Haas School of Business, have already volunteered to support their local communities.
The event is FREE for small businesses to participate thanks to our official sponsors and corporate partners like RingCentral.
Small businesses in the Bay Area and throughout the state are encouraged to apply to participate at https://thesbschallenge.com/application-business and nominate fellow small business owners in their community to benefit from the support as well at https://thesbschallenge.com/nominate
