Testimonials from business students consultants

“Being associated with the Small Business Corps wasn’t just enriching, it was deeply satisfying. Applying my skills and knowledge to solve real-world problems brought a joy I haven’t found elsewhere. They bridge the gap between those who can help and those who need it, and the diverse team makes the projects even stronger. For any student who wants to learn, make a difference, and give back, I’d say that the Small Business Corps is the place to be!”
Kyle Wagner (MBA’24)

“Finding the time to give back can be tough, but the Small Business Corps changed that for me! Their platform perfectly matched me with a small business project I could truly contribute to. As part of the first group, I was impressed by the team’s support. They planned everything meticulously, from onboarding to client connections. They even actively sought feedback to improve the experience for future participants. It’s been a fantastic two months, and I’m already signed up for the next cohort!  Can’t wait to meet more passionate people and tackle another meaningful challenge.”
