Comcast Rise announces major expansion to all women-owned small businesses nationwide starting in 2022

Comcast Corporation announces today a major expansion of 康卡斯特上升 to all women-owned businesses nationwide, furthering its efforts to advance 数字资产 and help provide underrepresented small business owners with access to the digital tools and funding they need to thrive.

仅仅在第一年, 康卡斯特上升 has provided more than $60 million in grants, 市场营销, and technology services to more than 6,700 small businesses owned by people of color - including Black, 土著, 拉美裔, 和亚裔美国人. 的6,700 康卡斯特上升 recipients to date, nearly 70% have been businesses owned by women of color, spurring Comcast to take a deeper look into the unique challenges faced by women entrepreneurs.

根据一项 研究 by the National Association of Women Business Owners, 42% of businesses in the U.S. are owned by women, with more than 1,800 new businesses being starting every day. That’s nearly five times the national average. 然而, according to the same 研究, women-owned businesses are growing at only half the rate of those run by men, namely because women struggle to access capital and other resources to help them succeed.

Sarah Sommer, Co-Founder of iFundWomen echoes this important point, “The data about how women, a rapidly increasing number of whom are small business owners, have fared during the pandemic is stark. Women business owners tend to have limited access to capital and debt-free funding options, yet they represent a tremendous opportunity. Women-owned businesses deliver two times higher revenue per dollar invested than those founded by men, making them great investments.”

“As we continue to rebuild and emerge from the effects of the pandemic, small businesses will continue to be the backbone of our economy – and we must take every opportunity to help them thrive,” Dave Watson, President and CEO, Comcast Cable. “期待, this expansion will enable 康卡斯特上升 to further empower and strengthen even more small businesses that are the heart of our local communities across the country.”

康卡斯特上升, which stands for Representation, Investment, Strength, and Empowerment, is part of 项目, Comcast’s comprehensive initiative to advance 数字资产 and help provide underrepresented small business owners with access to the digital tools and funding they need to thrive. Over the next 10 years, Comcast has 承诺 10亿美元用于项目, 像康卡斯特上升, and partnerships that will reach an estimated 50 million people with the skills, 机会, and resources they need to succeed in an increasingly digital world

康卡斯特上升, which just celebrated it’s one year anniversary, will continue to be open to racially and ethnically diverse small business owners and the expanded 康卡斯特上升 eligibility to all women-owned businesses will be effective on January 16, 2022. More information and the applications to apply for either the grant program or 市场营销 and technology services are available at www.ComcastRISE.com.
