Impacting Communities by Fueling the Dream of Owning a Business
“The Small Business Association says that small businesses account for up to 80% of new jobs and reminds us that entrepreneurship is a driving force behind our economy,” says Elizabeth Schott, CEO of Accion Serving Southern California. “Entrepreneurs are passionate about what they do and are committed to making their dreams come true. Through Accion’s programs and services, hardworking men and women gain support to start a business, create jobs, create vibrant communities and reach their dreams.”
