Justice Impacted Entrepreneurs
Impact AZ is thrilled to announce that
We have expanded our Entrepreneurial Training Program to Support Justice Impacted Entrepreneurs.
Supplier Diversity Technical Assistance
Business Planning & Mentorship
This initiative encompasses technical assistance, access to capital, and comprehensive training to empower these individuals in establishing and growing successful businesses. Aligned with the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to enhance opportunities for returning citizens, strengthen communities, and stimulate the economy, our focus on entrepreneurship serves as a crucial avenue.
Entrepreneurial endeavors have proven to be instrumental for formerly incarcerated individuals, who frequently encounter numerous barriers while seeking opportunities in the job market.
This path helps pave the way toward a healthy and productive life. As Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), Chair of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, articulated, “Justice-impacted entrepreneurs are less likely to recidivate and are more likely to employ other justice-impacted individuals.” We invite you to join us in supporting these entrepreneurs, empowering them to establish thriving businesses that benefit them and contribute positively to their communities.
