At Small Town Love we know that entrepreneurs are the backbone of innovative and creative local economies. Your vision, ideas and hard work shape your community’s culture and strengthen the local economy. Whether you need to bounce your ideas off someone, require mentorship to set up an entrepreneur-led initiative in your community or want to learn more about how your business impacts your local economy, we’re here to help!

We can help launch your pollinator project!

A small business pollinator is a self-financing business with a mission of supporting other local businesses. Coined by Michael Shuman, pollinators spark the local business ecosystem to life and create far more jobs without relying on public funds to do so. These nimble and supportive organizations prioritize the success of local businesses and often have their pulse on local entrepreneurial culture enabling them to stimulate business development and growth in the local economy. Whether you want to learn more about how pollinator businesses can be grown in your community or how to start one yourself, we can help!
