We accelerate sustainable entrepreneurs through direct technical assistance (business plan feedback, financing strategy feedback, referrals to additional resources), and workshops.
We help entrepreneurs prepare for equity funding, leveraging the expertise of our affiliated positive impact investor, SJF Ventures. We provide unique support around employee engagement and broad-based ownership. Furthermore, we participate in industry-building initiatives such as task forces and advisory boards and lend our expertise in speaking and judging at national and local entrepreneurial events. See story below describing one example of how SJF Institute accelerates the success of sustainable entrepreneurs.
