The Small Business School Challenge

The SBS Challenge is a virtual event connecting top MBA talent with hundreds of small business owners to provide a fast, actionable strategic boost.

Our mission is to strengthen the small business ecosystem while creating the next generation of SMB-fluent business leaders.

Our virtual 48-hour events pair hundreds of small business owners with teams of MBA students and business mentors across the US. Participation is free to all thanks to donors and sponsors. In our first year, we supported nearly 400 small business owners across 33 states, with help from 1,200 MBA students and business expert volunteers from 25 top business schools.

Our small business alumni told us the average value of consulting they receive during our events is $3,000+. 50%+ of our small business participants increased revenue and 48% were able to hire or rehire staff after our events, even during the prolonged pandemic, far exceeding national statistics of small businesses without this level of strategic help.
