Why Are We Asking For $50k?
Scale Our Podcast Community Voice

telling your stories of projects and business owners (currently reaching 11.5K listeners) into the next NPR for small businesses (podcast + blog platform)

Host A National Conference

to bring students and clients from our 15 universities together across the country alongside Fortune 500 companies, startup CEOs, and inspirational small business owners to cover core consulting skills and startup basics (we need to raise funds if we want this to be free for students and our small business clients..

Grow Our Pilot Microloan Program

“Fund Your Community” to provide everything from capital to counsel for clients most in need of our help. These are 0% interest loans for small business clients that our students have worked with over 3 months to verify as having a justifiable need and plan for growth. Our students then help provide oversight to ensure the loan is effectively used for qualifying small business clients.

Implement An Internal Database

for chapters to easily access past deliverables nationally by industry and connect to an internal community (initial mockups designed by former president of Boston College CYC, Veronika Fojtu, who spent over 100 hours in her database class with a team of undergraduate students to make initial prototypes)

Continue Sustainability And Growth Of The Organization And Cover Fundraising Expenses

(semester-long vetting process for new chapters, investing in training resources for all members, investing in site redesign and updates)
