Celebrating Success


Let’s come together again to celebrate the accomplishments of EGBI and its clients.  In 2020, EGBI served over 450 individuals by providing over 170 training hours and over 900 hours of one-on-one coaching. Throughout the pandemic, our clients have shown Resilience. At Celebrating Success event, you will hear how small businesses have overcome one of their biggest challenges, COVID-19.  Celebrating Success will be held on October 20th, 2021, 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM  LIVE through our EGBI’s Facebook and LinkedIn account.  In keeping with tradition, we will showcase inspiring stories from our small business communities, their businesses, and products/services.

This is  EGBI’s main annual fundraiser.  Please help us reach our fundraising  goal. Every donation made during this program, the donor will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a Tito’s Handmade VodkaGift Basket.    To make a donation, please click HERE. 

EGBI Clients

EGBI is an organization that truly cares for small businesses. They listen, take the time to know you and your business to better understand your situation and provide the right guidance and resources according to your needs.” Nayeli Gallegos, President at Red Carpet Productions, LLC and EGBI Alumni

I am honored to work for an organization whose clients are trying to provide a better life for their families and their employees. Our clients are truly living the American dream.” Barbra Boeta, Executive Director of EGBI

Sponsorship opportunities are available throughout the year. Thanks to the generosity of our premier sponsor, Texas Capital Bank, 100% of your sponsorship will go towards EGBI’s programs and services. Your support helps us connect individuals to the resources and education they need to make them successful business owners. As you may know, although Austin is an awesome city for small businesses,  not everyone has equal access to great resources. We hope you view this as an opportunity that needs to be addressed, and that you join our efforts and help us create, grow and sustain successful grassroots businesses, contributing to Austin’s economy and the prosperity of their families.
