How Starbucks is Caffeinating our Economy

Nov 11, 2011 Published under Entrepreneurship and Management, Leadership

I am a big fan of Starbucks’s Create Jobs for USA campaign and it is incredibly admirable to see business leaders take a stand for the state of our country.   For every purchase of the $5 Indivisible wristband, Starbucks will donate $35 to Opportunity Finance Network, an organization that doles out grants to Community Development Financial Institutions.  These organizations in turn forward money to small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofits and other community focused institutions, in hopes of- you guessed it- creating jobs.

We have never been more proud to be one of Starbucks and Howard Schultz’s partners.
