Small business support ecosystem
Our mission is to rebuild, restore, and rethink the path to business success for Entrepreneurs of Color.
Created for Minority Entrepreneurs to ASCEND
JPMorgan Chase & Co. has partnered with Morehouse Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center, Village Micro Fund, Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs, and Atlanta Wealth Building Initiative to launch Ascend Atlanta, a small business support ecosystem for minority-led companies throughout Metropolitan Atlanta.
We work to provide access to management support, technical assistance, capital, and market pivoting strategies to increase our impact in the areas of long-term sustainability, revenue generation, job creation, and capital raised.
We build community by connecting our alumni and cohort members through peer learning, access to issue-specific guidance, and networking sessions to increase social capital and business development opportunities.
We stand out with our 3-M model focused on growth & sustainability
