We are proud to partner with Comcast to help small businesses owned by people of color (PoC) grow as they navigate the challenges of the pandemic. Comcast RISE was created to invest in the success of these critical businesses by providing valuable and practical support.
Independent small businesses are the backbone of our communities, and today, more than ever, small businesses owned by people of color are hurting. Over the past eighteen months we have had conversations with hundreds of diverse small business owners and we continue to hear about the need for additional support when it comes to marketing, technology, and funds that will help them on their path to recovery.
Qualified PoC-owned businesses have the opportunity to apply for and receive marketing consultations, media placements, commercial creative production services, or technology services from Comcast Business. Businesses in select markets may also apply for $10,000 Grants!
Businesses in King County and Pierce County are eligible to apply for both Comcast RISE programs:
- Marketing Services and Tech Makeovers – Applications will close on October 17.
- Investment Fund ($10,000 grants) – Applications accepted October 1-14.
Intentionalist and Comcast RISE share the belief that PoC-owned small businesses are at the heart of a more connected, inclusive economy.
