Wells was one of SFMade’s founding partners when we were a scrappy startup with a big vision; they have provided support every year throughout our ten year history; and this year, in a time of crisis, Wells Fargo has provided unrestricted funding for our Small Manufacturer Disaster Response Initiative.
The Small Manufacturer Disaster Response Initiative provides manufacturers in San Francisco and San Jose with intensive, hands-on support to help them re-open, re-hire, and survive.
Wells Fargo also supports us by holding a position on our Board of Directors, where we chart the future of SFMade and make critical decisions that impact local manufacturers throughout the Bay Area.
“It is an honor and pleasure to volunteer on SFMade’s Board of Directors to see firsthand the critical work SFMade does tirelessly to support the manufacturing sector. Personally I enjoy hearing updates from staff about their work with all sizes of companies because on one hand it is inspiring to learn about the achievements and creativity of entrepreneurs, and on the other hand it is so clear how vital SFMade’s role can be since those companies often face a number of challenges and tribulations where support is needed” —Tracy Burton, Senior Vice President, Wells Fargo – Community Lending and Investment
Thank you, Wells Fargo, for your incredible support for local manufacturers!
