Social Capital Opportunities


Accion is proud to be Samuel Adams’ program partner for the company’s signature philanthropic initiative: Brewing the American Dream.


Sam Adams believes that if an entrepreneur has the guts, drive and perseverance to follow their own path, access to resources shouldn’t be what stands in the way. That’s why the company created Brewing the American Dream in 2008 and asked Accion to be the program’s lending partner. Together, Sam Adams and Accion provide loans, coaching and networks to passionate entrepreneurs pursuing their craft and the American dream of running their own business.


We’ve worked behind the scenes on speed coaching, pitch room competitions, webinars and more – uniting our expertise with the passion and business knowhow of Sam Adams employees to offer a one-of-a-kind suite of programs and services that sets businesses up for success.
