CEO Connection Minority Business Funding Program
The CEO Connection Minority Business Funding Program provides small minority owned businesses with access to capital through minority owned banks and then gives their CEOs access to a built in network.
CEO Connection member companies deposit excess cash in a federally insured CEO Connection designated minority owned bank. The funds will be used to provide capital and support to minority owned businesses.
CEO Connection waives its size requirements for the CEOs of the small minority owned businesses that receive funds and enrolls them in the Growth Acceleration Program to provide them with access to a built in network that can help them grow and create wealth.
Two big challenges for small, minority owned businesses are: access to capital and access to a network of resources.
This program has real, tangible impact. It:
- Provides access to capital to minority owned businesses through minority owned banks and to a built in network of resources through CEOC.
- Supports economic justice by building wealth in minority communities
- Creates investment, acquisition, supply chain diversity, and board seat opportunities for our members.
