Leveraging Online Support Communities
Small business loan recipients through Pacific Community Ventures automatically receive support and coaching through the online community of experts on businessadvising.org. The coaches hail from major banks, consulting firms, and Fortune 500 companies. They are expert-level mentors from dozens of fields, like marketing, HR, finance, operations, and IT. While periodic meetings are required with an advisor, loan recipients are also free to use this tool as much as they like as experts are primarily volunteers. It is because of support like this that PCV loan recipients are succeeding across the board while also never having missed a payment.
There is no specific geographic focus of the members of businessadvising.org. It can be accessed, either as a business or a volunteer advisor, from anywhere in the US. To view a map of where users are please see the resource section below.
