First Year Projections

SBAC Empower expects to accomplish a lot in our first year, including: facilitating 100 participants in our Empowering Small Business Seminar Series; the successful launch of our mentoring program and support for the funding program; and the launch of our small business expo — Chicago Entrepreneur Expo.

But we can’t do it alone. As a nonprofit, we need your help to make this program a success.

Here are a few reasons why a donation to SBAC Empower is a wise one:

  • Small businesses started by SBAC Empower graduates benefit from the SBAC.
  • Supporting people in career transitions — whether or not starting a business is the right path for them — reinforces our mission of empowering small businesses and entrepreneurs.
  • Supporting the creation of small business is the backbone of our Illinois economy.
  • Providing small business support to individuals who lack the resources to do it on their own can impact business in economically challenged Chicago communities.
  • All contributions to SBAC Empower are tax deductible.

Can we count on you for support?
