Join us at Google campus for first-ever SMB summit

ASIAN, Inc. and the three MBDA Business Centers it operates are joining forces with the Accelerate with Google team, which works to help minority-owned businesses succeed online. The result: our first-ever Google Tools Summit for Small and Midsize Businesses, where Google's Small Business Supplier Diversity Program will also be an important topic. 

The Summit will be held on Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 12:15 to 4:30 at one of Google's campuses (in San Francisco, San Bruno or Mountain View) -- specific location details will be sent to confirmed RSVPs only. Light refreshments will be served.

We want to help families live in the heart of SF!

 1400 Mission Street 

Our Housing Counseling team joined our fellow housing nonprofits for a tour of 1400 Mission Street, where 167 below-market-rate (BMR) housing units are being built. The homes will range in price from the high-$100,000s to the low-$300,000s. We want to help you qualify to enter the lottery to buy one of these BMR units in the heart of San Francisco. Every month, we hold a pre-purchase workshop in Chinese for prospective first-time homebuyers -- our next workshop is Sunday, April 19.
We are accepting registrations for our workshops by phone at (415) 928-5910 x135. Space is extremely limited, given the demand on housing in one of the most expensive markets in the country.
