BEST PGH wants to bridge cultural and economic divides that sow injustice and disenfranchise our neighbors. Our goals include:
- Increase revenue and/or productivity using partnering service providers, typically so small businesses can hire or provide their own improved or additional services, which thereby improves the quality of the business district of the target community;
- Focus direct investment and resources directly on the small businesses instead of at the nonprofits serving them and their communities;
- Capitalize on mentoring and business coaching relationships beyond the weekend workshop or neighborhood marketing seminar by offering 18 month engagements with the business owner to provide the expert guidance, strategy, and networking that can truly unfold within long term relationships built on trust and mutual respect.
