Santander's Cultivate Small Business Program Seeking Mentors

Member-to-Member Business Resources Small Business Resources
Santander's Cultivate Small Business program provides education, coaching, and small capital grants to early stage food entrepreneurs in low-income neighborhoods, with a focus on supporting food businesses owned by women, people of color, and immigrants.

The entrepreneurs have typically been in business for a year or more, are doing $25,000-$1,000,000 in revenue and have at least one full-time employee (which can be the entrepreneur, themselves). 

Throughout the program, each participant develops an action plan to grow their business. A key part — and often the most meaningful to participants — is the one-on-one mentoring with a seasoned industry professional. The time commitment to be a mentor is approximately 3 hours (a minimum of 3 one-hour meetings) between April 19th and the end of June, 2022. 

If you are interested in serving as a mentor for a growing small food business with Santander’s Cultivate Small Business, you can fill out the commitment form.

Please reach out to Hilary Chebra, Manager, Government Affairs at if you have any questions.
