The San Francisco Economic Development Alliance

SFEDA is a collaboration of nonprofit organizations that provide training, funding and ongoing support for small and micro businesses in San Francisco. Our mission is to help low- and moderate-income San Franciscans improve their quality of life by strengthening small businesses and microenterprises.

We achieve this mission by formalizing referrals between organizations, actively advocating at the City level for small businesses, leveraging resources and best practices and  maintaining meaningful partnerships.
