Building Capacity to Thrive

Our mission is to engage minority business owners to expand their capacity and create employment opportunities that transform communities and lives.

Many minority business owners miss out on supplier diversity opportunities to engage larger institutions such as utilities, financial institutions and other corporations across the country. Impact engages those institutions to create broader opportunities for those minority business owners. We engage businesses along with banking and federal partners to provide the assistance that is needed. Not only do we train, but we provide microloans to assist businesses in early stages of development.
