What we're about

Hello SF LGBT Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs,

My name is Eddie Tang. I am the Small Business Consultant at SF LGBT Center.

Over the last 15 years, SF LGBT Center Economic Development Team has served hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners in the LGBTQ community, as well as other underserved communities in the San Francisco Bay Area through our one-on-one small business consulting service.

However, we want to do more. We want to create a space where many of you can continue to come back and get support. We want to provide ongoing support using a variety of partners and resources we have access to. We want to help you succeed. We also want to create a space where entrepreneurs can support and help each other. And this is the idea of SF LGBT Center Business Business Group.

Through this space, and our events and workshops,

. Our resource partners and subject experts will come to host workshops based on the feedback from the small business owners.

. You can meet with our small business consultant who will be here to answer your questions.

. You can come to work on any projects you have if that's all you want to do.

. Small business owners can network and get to know each other.

. New business owners can search for a mentor and experienced business owners can offer their knowledge and experience to help them.

. Entrepreneurs can brainstorm and support each other.

If you are new and have not attended our one-on-one consulting section, we encourage you to make an appointment with our Small Business Consultant Eddie Tang through below link. The consulting is offered free of charge. It is certainly not a requirement but it will be helpful.
