In 2016 Main Street Launch and Northern California Community Loan Fund (NCCLF) announced our partnership called PRO Oakland. Together, we are offering expert advising to small businesses (advising through Main Street Launch) and nonprofits (advising through NCCLF), entities poised to be impacted by the construction of the East Bay Bus Rapid Transit system (BRT). This partnership is funded through JPMorgan Chase’s PRO Neighborhoods initiative.
BRT has the potential to bring new customers and services to East Oakland, and our goal is to help existing businesses owners survive the construction and thrive after it is completed. You can learn more about our partnership by clicking here.
If you know small business owners who need money to grow their business or who are looking for advice about how to take their business to the next level, please share this flyer with them. We look forward to sharing more client stories with you!
