Sample Street was a historic center for manufacturing in South Bend and we are helping bring it back to life with the launch of ScalingUp!! South Bend.


This program brings together a cohort of local, small, product- based businesses that are ready to grow and put deep roots in the city.  This curriculum includes nine 37 Oaks University live webinars; supplemental On-Demand courses & our 1:1 mentorship & coaching services. 


37 Oaks loves working with municipalities invested in strengthening small business owners because they understand their value & impact to the community & economy. Stay tuned for program updates & follow on social media @37oaks to experience the cohort's journey.
