To encourage student success at California State University, Northridge and to give back to the valley residents.  Wells Fargo Center for Small Business & Entrepreneurship matches local businesses with professors and student groups.  The students act as consultants in order to reinforce concepts learned at the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics.  The local businesses receive consulting services such as integrated marketing campaign development, brand strategies, business plan writing services, and more.


Students get a taste of what it’s like to be a consultant and work with a real client.  The experience teaches them business communication, networking, strategy, negotiation, time management, and gives them real world experience.

Local businesses get a fresh take on their challenges by up-and-coming professionals. Often businesses receive a full business plan, potentially valued from $40,000 – $100,000 depending on the business.

The experience is collaborative and creates lasting improvements for the local client and gives opportunities to students that are not available in the classroom alone.
