We’re proud to offer free education and tools for founders of startups, nonprofits and small businesses. This is made possible thanks to support from NorCal SBDC and Granite City Accelerator.

Office Hours

Office Hours are hosted by our CEO, Sedale Turbovsky, with additional support from grant writers and experts curated from the OpenGrants network.

Each session is one hour on Zoom—in AMA format—where we’ll answer questions and offer advice, covering everything from non-profit grant applications to startup growth advising. We’ll divide you into breakout rooms as appropriate.

Attendance is limited to 10 people per session and RSVP is required. These are held once per week, so come as many times as you need!

RSVP

After completing the form, you will be emailed a link to RSVP for office hours.

The Startup Library

The Startup Library is a free resource for founders, made possible by our partnership with NorCal SBDC and Granite City Accelerator. It features curated content including webinars, book summaries, articles, and podcasts. It also houses tools like venture pitch decks, email and deck templates, grant templates, and an alternative funding database.
