How The Program Works
We work collaboratively with small business owners to first understand their needs. Participants are then connected with skilled Mile High United Way volunteers that provide personalized and no-cost consulting in areas of accounting, marketing, legal support, and other business-critical functions to help owners reach their growth potential.
WHY SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS MATTERS
Income inequality can be addressed by accessing quality, well-paying jobs as entrepreneurship is one of the best ways to build assets and wealth. When our local businesses thrive, entire neighborhoods also thrive. Want to join us in supporting local businesses? View a directory of our small business clients.
