Jay Goltz has reported on a potentially very important program started by Boston Brewing (Sam Adams beer) in association with Accion International.
Basically, they’re doing seminars for breweries and other businesses in a couple of test markets (we understand Boston and Denver) where they assemble experts from various fields and have them spend 20 minutes with each owner who attends. The catch is attendees have to have a loan with Accion, but that’s pretty easy to do.
We at the school have already reached out to Accion to see how we might help.
