COVID-19 has impacted many small businesses. Having a website is essential for them to survive but also sustain a longer-term delivery or e-commerce-based model. However, many entrepreneurs don’t have the budget, time or skills needed to design a simple website for their business.
That’s where you come in! Our website design project is the perfect opportunity if you are looking to volunteer your time and talent and help an entrepreneur building a simple website (or improving their current one).
Are you a good fit? This virtual volunteer opportunity is for you if you have at least 3 years of professional experience in website design and familiarity with some popular platforms such as Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, Wordpress and GoDaddy. Volunteers must be located in the United States.
What will you be doing? Once approved as a volunteer, you will access the list of website design projects currently available and will be able to filter by business location (e.g. New York, Bay area) and industry. You will then connect one-on-one with an entrepreneur and assist them in creating or improving their website.
What is the time commitment? This project can typically last between 30-45 days, depending on your availability. This includes some preparation and design time (flexible to your schedule) and interactions with the entrepreneur (via email, phone or video conferencing). This is a limited-scope opportunity with a clear deliverable at the end of the project.
Do you provide resources to get started? We provide information about the entrepreneur’s business and website needs, and, if available, a design brief from the entrepreneur with input on their brand colors, fonts, requested functionality and other relevant information about their business.

Our mission is to help under-resourced entrepreneurs create thriving businesses in underserved areas so owners can build wealth for themselves, their families and their communities. We do this by activating a network of top-tier professional volunteers like you to deliver pro-bono legal, financial and marketing services, personally nurturing each business owner’s success.
Start Small Think Big is a non-profit organization founded 11 years ago in New York City.
Over the past few years, we have successfully expanded our work to San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. We are now in the midst of another period of rapid growth and expansion, as we work to replicate our model nationally and grow existing programs to serve larger numbers of entrepreneurs.
We work with entrepreneurs who are of color, women, members of under-resourced groups, and/or low-income - with business revenues under $1M. Services are delivered across three core programmatic areas: the legal program, the financial program, and the marketing program.
