Destination Downtown South Boston and The Advancement Foundation's Entrepreneurial Needs Survey
The Advancement Foundation along with multiple partners created this Entrepreneurial Needs Assessment to provide a platform for entrepreneurs to connect with support and resources that advance their business goals. This brief assessment is the first step in helping us develop your 360 Degree Business and Entrepreneur Development Plan. All information is treated with strict confidentiality.

The Advancement Foundation is a nonprofit committed to Business and Community Development. More than 300 entrepreneurs, over 200 community mentors, 100+ resource partners, and 20+ (and growing) localities have formed this regional alliance to effectively provide business knowledge, mentor guidance, and capital resources to the local entrepreneurs we serve. Since its inception, The Advancement Foundation's programs have provided $1,034,000 in direct business resources to entrepreneurs and $790,000 in outside resources and grants for the communities we serve.

The Advancement Foundation’s successful model develops community infrastructure, provides innovative support, and increases resources directed for small to medium size businesses. The effectiveness of this program has been recognized for its positive impact by both the former and current Governors of Virginia, the Department of Community Development, and numerous other community leaders.

The Advancement Foundation’s model effectively engages all stakeholders in helping create vibrant communities through small business development. The model is exciting, collaborative and wildly popular as demonstrated by its rapid spread across our region.

We look forward to helping you advance your business!
