We are good people who love good people
At Tarmac SF, startups pay a fixed fee for 3 months. That’s all. No counterparts. No equity shares.
How is that? The answer is simple: we are a nonprofit and we do what we do because we believe it’s right. While we do not select only social businesses, we deeply believe that entrepreneurship is a great way to empower individuals and an efficient tool to generate social and environmental impact.
Helping people is in our DNA: Tarmac SF is a project of CALSO, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides entrepreneurship and workforce development programs to help every individuals reach their full potential.
