Recently, small businesses have been dealing with the ongoing impact of the pandemic, social unrest, and environmental events. We have been working proactively to help all our small business customers. In its first year alone, Comcast RISE has provided more than $60 million in grants, marketing and technology services to more than 8,000 small businesses owned by people of color – including Black, Indigenous, Hispanic, and Asian Americans.
On November 23rd, Comcast RISE announced a major expansion of Comcast RISE to all women-owned businesses nationwide, furthering its effort to advance digital equity and help provide underrepresented small business owners with access to the digital tools and funding they need to thrive. Through Comcast RISE we aim to create sustainable impact and give meaningful support to the small businesses who are shaping our communities.
