SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sep 06, 2023 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Millionaire Mastermind Academy, a national nonprofit organization addressing the barriers to economic mobility for systemically underserved minority entrepreneurs, proudly announced that it will award $30,000 in grants to local Black-owned small businesses through Elevate Together® powered by Round It Up America® to accelerate their growth and prosperity. The grants will support IMPACT AZ 2025, Arizona’s largest supplier diversity readiness program, designed to close the racial wealth gap for business owners.
“We are thrilled to partner with Elevate Together to offer grants to business owners within the Impact AZ Program, which is working to close the racial wealth gap through supplier diversity readiness technical assistance,” said Millionaire Mastermind Academy founder and CEO Dr. Velma Trayham.
Elevate Together® was designed to help accelerate the creation, growth, and prosperity of Black- and Hispanic-owned small businesses through education, access, and aid in collaboration with the National Urban League’s Entrepreneurship Centers and the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. As the founding corporate partner of this nonprofit initiative, The ODP Corporation (parent company to Office Depot, ODP Business Solutions, Veyer, and Varis) proudly pledged an initial investment to help kickstart the program in several major markets to provide eligible small business owners with access to technical assistance programming, mentorship services, professional networks and more.
