Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center is a nonprofit small business development organization dedicated to helping women and men who traditionally lack access to resources and information to achieve financial self-sufficiency through entrepreneurship.  Renaissance provides training, support services, resources, and networks for business owners at every stage of business development, from idea feasibility through start-up, growth, and expansion.

Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center clients reflect the diversity of the Bay Area; 72% are women; 75% are people of color, 90% are low-to-moderate income, and nearly one in eight have disabilities.

Each year Renaissance helps more than 1,500 low-moderate income Bay Area women and men launch and grow over 400 businesses that generate approximately $28 million in revenue.
