Call for invitations to apply to participate in the third Small Business School Challenge, a national virtual business innovation and consulting event pairing real small business owners with teams of MBA students to create new strategies to succeed, open now through March 25th.
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 previous events rated the SBSC 9.5/10 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. They valued the overall support received at more than $3,000.
The SBSC-III takes place during 48 hours from April 8-10th, 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 donors, sponsors, and official corporate partners like RingCentral.
Small businesses in CA are encouraged to apply to participate and nominate fellow small business owners in their community to benefit from the support as well.
