Adopt-a-Business Program

Please note that the intake portion of the Adopt-a-Business program is closed for the Fall 2023 semester. If you are a student or a business interested in participating, you are still encouraged to register for the 2024 Spring semester starting in February.

Adopt-a-Business (AaB) is a student internship program designed for business, communication, and marketing majors.

Its aim is to provide free support in digital marketing and social media to local and regional small businesses.

The program allows students to gain practical experience in business consulting, entrepreneurship, and digital marketing by interacting with real-world businesses.

In turn, local and regional businesses benefit from having access to cutting-edge talent to enhance their business by leveraging digital marketing and their growing online presence.

The program was established in 2015 and is hosted by the SUNY Geneseo Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the School of Business.
