Are your ready for National Small Business Week?

Today starts National Small Business Week! Accion loves small businesses and is dedicated to empowering San Diego entrepreneurs through providing business support and loans from $300 to $35,000.  You can get involved and support Accion and local small businesses in three easy steps: TWEET, EAT, & GIVE.

TWEET: Help Accion San Diego reach 6000 Twitter Followers and 500 Facebook Fans!  Accion will be featuring local small businesses through stories, videos, and news throughout the week.  Follow @accionsd on Twitter and “Like” on Facebook and watch out for anything we post with hashtag #SBW2012. Tweet, Re-tweet, @mention, comment, like, or share anything and everything you see to help spread the word.  Make sure to use the #SBW2012 hashtag!

EAT: Support a local business and microfinance all while eating delicious homemade tacos.  Accion will be partnering with former microfinance client, Mama Testa Taqueria in Hillcrest, to host a restaurant fundraiser day.  Eat at Mama Testa on Tuesday, May 22nd at anytime between 11:30 am and 9:00 pm and 20% of your total bill will go toward Accion to directly assist San Diego entrepreneurs with loan capital and technical assistance. Find Mama Testa at 1417 University Ave., San Diego, CA

GIVE: Accion San Diego is going to be featured on Groupon Grassroots during National Small Business Week to raise funds for the organization.  We’re calling on 230 people to give $11 for Accion to provide credit-building loans to San Diego entrepreneurs. Donations will be matched up to $2500 by Torrey Pines Bank and 100% of donations go directly to Accion San Diego. The Fundraising Campaign will run from May 20th to 26th.  Check it out here:

Thank you for your support and commitment to Accion San Diego and the small businesses in our community!
