untitled1Congratulations to Accion and the Boston Beer Company’s program Brewing the American Dream for being selected as a finalist in the Social Service category of the 2013 Cause Marketing Halo Awards!

Brewing the American Dream was built on the belief that having a great idea for a business is a good start. But to be successful,all business owners need access to capital, business and financial know-how, and a network of peers and mentors who can provide support and advice along the way.

Since 2008, the Brewing the American Dream program has helped thousands of small business owners throughout the U.S. with microloans, educational resources, and personalized mentoring. The program has distributed over $1 million dollars in capital to more than 130 small food and beverage businesses, enabling them to create or save more than 1,000 local jobs.

In 2012 alone there were 12 Brewing the American Dream Speed Coaching events, mentoring over 700 entrepreneurs across the country. Additionally, the program disbursed loans to 83 business owners, resulting in the creation or retention of over 300 jobs!

We can’t wait to expand the program in 2013 to additional markets, offering more online resources and new components to our Speed Coaching events. To stay up to date on Brewing the American Dream visit our website!
