Social and Economic Equity for Minority Enterprises Program
Raising visibility and opportunities for black-owned business in Arizona
Next Cohort Starts July 2023
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The SEE ME Program is designed to assist black-owned businesses in the state of Arizona. It is part of BPI's Social Justice Project to improve economic equity in Arizona’s black communities state-wide, by helping to close the wealth gap through supporting, tracking, and evaluating a total of twenty (20) nonprofit/ for-profit businesses over the course of eighteen months.
Support includes a system of mentoring, financial education, business development, and capital investment.
Participating organizations are identified, evaluated, then held accountable for success through course compliance, mentorship engagement, and business growth metrics.
"We must work together to ensure the equitable distribution of wealth, opportunity, and power in our society" - Nelson Mandela
The goal of the program is to ultimately reduce potential business failure by optimizing strong financial education, and utilizing black directory marketing and applying grant funds to grow business.
The goal is to raise the visibility and increase growth opportunities, by offering strategic support to stabilize their companies, connections with larger firms to expand their networks, and financial accountability to strengthen business banking relationships.
