Mission Statement

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.

Did not get a follow-up on how to volunteer/participate.

Found that the clients were not responsive. We set up meet and greet calls, but the clients were not available for calls that they set up.

I loved to volunteer in this organization! Eliza and all the members of the organization are very kind and polite. I volunteered 3 times as a photographer and I enjoyed it very much. Plus the energy of the entrepreneurs inspired me to keep forward to my goals. I DEFINITELY recommend to volunteer with them!
