We also recommend that you join Ureeka for mentoring, growth and other key support.
Ureeka is a Community where small businesses gain unprecedented access to the expertise needed to grow their business. They offer:
The Ureeka mission is to democratize economic opportunity by enabling community and by reducing the cost and risk associated with growing a small to medium business (SMB).
Our mission came to life when Ureeka’s three founders met while judging a pitch competition. We quickly realized that we shared a passion for helping small businesses grow. Unfortunately, the traditional paths of angel investing and board work weren’t having a significant enough impact on those that needed it most.
Ureeka enables unprecedented access for underrepresented SMBs: access to a collaborative community, shared best practices, and a specialist marketplace.
[VIDEO] Webinar: Preparing Your Business to Navigate Coronavirus Disruption
Supporting and providing expertise to small businesses is what we do every single day, and we do it completely virtually. As companies around the globe are navigating how to adjust to Coronavirus news, we at Ureeka are ready and here to help you “Coronavirus-proof” your business.
The topics covered include:
- Best practices to prepare for the financial impact of a crisis
- How to prepare your business operationally to avoid major disruptions
- How to identify ways for maintaining, or even growing, revenue
- Key tips to successfully move your company to a virtual model
[VIDEO] Webinar: COVID-19 Recovery for SMBs
The COVID-19 pandemic has financially crippled small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), leaving many founders struggling to pay bills & employees. In fact, 51% of small business owners say their business will only be able to operate for 0-3 months and 67% are unsure how to access and apply for emergency funding.
This webinar will help SMBs assess your needs, identify funding sources in your geographic region and determine the appropriate capital for your business. More importantly, you will walk away equipped with the knowledge and tools to apply for emergency funding to help your business survive COVID-19.

ABOUT AB5 AND CONTRACTOR / GIG WORKERS
California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) extends employee classification status to gig workers. Companies must use a three-pronged test to prove workers are independent contractors, not employees. AB5 is designed to regulate companies that hire gig workers in large numbers, such as Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash but are making big waves with arts groups, truckers and many more. What does this law (and the supreme court decision behind it) mean to the social sector?
