Diverse Businesses Win Super Bowl With Pacific Communities Ventures and Business Connect
By: Pacific Community Ventures
"Super Bowl 50 is more than the NFL's marquee game of the year, it's a chance for the Bay Area's diverse small business community to tap into opportunities for new contracts and business growth," said Super Bowl Host Committee CEO Keith Bruce.
BusinessAdvising.org matches these entrepreneurs with mentors from Fortune 500 Companies to help these businesses grow for the Super Bowl and beyond. Growing these small businesses will bring economic development in communities across the Bay area, creating hundreds of quality jobs that will outlast the big game.
"Pacific Community Ventures' BusinessAdvising.org program has helped accelerate the growth of participating small businesses and add jobs at 167% the national average since 2011," said Pacific Community Ventures' President and CEO Mary Jo Cook.
"Pacific Community Ventures is just one of the latest examples of how community development financial institutions (CDFIs) are equipping small businesses with the tools they need to drive economic development in their communities,"
