GREAT NEWS!!!

We're just about over the finish line for a $200,000.00 grant from WEDC (Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation). The grant will help connect struggling and marginalized entrepreneurs to mini-grants and other resources including mentorship, training and tailored services.


HERE'S OUR CHALLENGE!!!

In order to qualify for the funds, we need to match the $200,000.00 with our own cash or services or we won't get it.


So, we're starting this ShareFund to raise our $200,000.00 match by our cut off period in March of 2022.


THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN!!!

Will you support EEC to help entrepreneurs get that bit of relief, guidance and service to take their businesses to the next level?


YOUR IMPACT IS DIRECT AND IT MATTERS!!!

$20,000 covers 20 entrepreneurs in need with 200 coaching and service hours, a 6 week business accelerator program, and/or 20 grants of up to $1,000.


$10,000 covers 100 coaching and services hours, six week business accelerator and/or up to 20 mini-grants of $500 for marginalized entrepreneurs


$1,000 - $5,000 covers coaching, mentoring, training, service hours and more mini-grants to entrepreneurs.


WHAT IS EEC

The Economic Empowerment Collaboration is a collective impact effort of economic development organizations working to decrease barriers to entrepreneurship for people of color by developing a continuum of support services throughout the life-cycle of an entrepreneurial enterprise. The goal here is to help entrepreneurs of color thrive by connecting them to the resources that they need (Needs-Based Resource Development).


EEC strives to empower emerging under-represented entrepreneurs through training/education programs, mentoring, networking opportunities, and access to a database of service providers to help entrepreneurs efficiently start and expand their businesses. When entrepreneurs are empowered, a community is empowered. EEC works intentionally and relentlessly to leverage the burgeoning entrepreneurial ecosystem to amplify entrepreneurs’ contribution to the economic growth – as innovators, problem solvers and ultimately, job creators.
