Applications are now being accepted for Local First Arizona’s inaugural Black Business Accelerator Program. Local First Arizona’s Small Business Development Manager, Carmen Attikossie who will lead the program says “A culturally responsive and collaborative entrepreneurial environment has proven to help build resiliency among communities who have far too often been left behind. We are ready to hit the ground running and be a resource the Black business community can count on to scale up and get started,”.
The program is being modeled after a similar program, Fuerza Local Business Accelerator, which is a program for latinx small businesses also created by Local First Arizona. Over 500 businesses have completed the program with over 600 jobs created from the small businesses.
