About this event

Attention MBA students: sign up to volunteer with the Small Business Strike Team (SBST) at The MBA Response! You’ll provide 1-on-1 guidance over ~ 2 hours to help a small business. Most projects help marginalized business owners, hit hard by COVID-19, navigate the PPP application process. We have myriad resources to get you up-to-speed. All MBA students have the skills needed, and this is a great way to gain real-world consulting experience while making a difference to a small business.

If you would like to stay involved with the SBST beyond the week of 1/18, you are welcome and encouraged to remain an active volunteer and continue receiving matches!

The mission of The MBA Response is to build capacity in under-resourced organizations & develop a generation of business leaders who serve. Our programs, including the Small Business Strike Team and the Service Team, connect MBA students across the country with underserved small businesses, nonprofits, and local government agencies via pro-bono management consulting projects, building a community of service-oriented emerging leaders.
