When Accion serving Southern California started in San Diego in 1994, we made five loans and ended our first year with a $6,000 loan portfolio…Twenty-five years later, we have assisted thousands of entrepreneurs throughout Southern California with education, resources and nearly $40 million in loans to their small businesses.
Join us to celebrate at our ’25th Accion-iversary Party’ on Thursday, Oct. 3, from 5:30 pm to 8 p.m. This client-centric reception will celebrate of the impact of small business in our local communities.
This inspiring evening will feature networking, dinner, dessert, entertainment and music – all provided by a diverse array of Accion-funded businesses. The Client Marketplace will offer attendees the opportunity to shop and support local entrepreneurs while hearing first-hand how Accion’s mission assisted these businesses. Everyone who attends the event will receive a $5 voucher to spend in the marketplace.
The event will also honor Jim Koch, Founder & Brewer of Samuel Adams and the creator of the Brewing the American Dream Partnership with Accion, as well as the Accion Entrepreneur of the Year award.
We hope to see you there!
