Building stronger communities through empowering small business owners and entrepreneurs.


Our city has a rich history of innovation and entrepreneurship, and a strong sense of community at the heart of it all.

Dayton Driven is a 501(c)(3) certified nonprofit established in January of 2019 to help create a strong foundation for the small businesses and entrepreneurs that form the pillars of this community. The skill, determination, and innovative ability is already present in the Clients we work with; we at Dayton Driven aim to nurture their drive, and give it the support it needs to get our clients where they want to go.

Our Consultants provide pro-bono financial management instruction and business consulting, and consist of young professionals from a variety of fields from finance to healthcare to the food industry, and graduate students in subjects from business administration to engineering. 

Clients work with our Consultants to develop a business plan that works for them, and if necessary, apply for a micro-loan with Dayton Driven. Working through our system allows our Clients to have continuous support through the implementation of their business plan even post-loan, and allows the Consultant(s) and Client to develop a long lasting relationship.
