For more than 35 years, we’ve been helping people facing systemic barriers to economic mobility achieve financial self-sufficiency through entrepreneurship. We measure our success by the thousands of thriving small businesses we’ve helped launch and grow throughout the Bay Area.
Renaissance engages motivated entrepreneurs wherever their skills and aspirations meet. Many come from communities that lack small business investment, educational resources, and entrepreneurial histories, and face discrimination by race, gender, sexual orientation, economic class, or past incarceration.
We provide the experienced counsel of small business professionals, with comprehensive services from inception to planning, access to capital and resources, and the ongoing assistance required to start and grow a business.
Renaissance is a network that never stops supporting the aspirations and goals of our clients.
We are locally focused, community-driven, and highly personalized. Renaissance has a long history of working in each distinct community we serve, and a compassionate understanding of the needs, skills, challenges, and dreams each individual brings to the table. Our work changes lives by helping people take ownership of their futures.
