In the wake of the pandemic, small businesses in downtown San Francisco have faced unprecedented challenges and struggles. The economic impact caused by prolonged shutdowns, reduced foot traffic, and changing consumer behavior has created a daunting environment for entrepreneurs. Incubating new small businesses would bring fresh ideas, innovation, and diversity to downtown San Francisco. Join us at the SPUR Urban Center for a 1-hour in-person program where we will hear from professionals from organizations whose mission is to help new entrepreneurs get started in San Francisco. A post-event cocktail hour will take place from 6:00-6:45PM.

Doors will open 30 minutes in advance of the program. A reception with light snacks and refreshments to follow the program.
