Capital Access Group is pleased to announce that we have provided a $20,000 grant to support the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center. Renaissance provides business training and support services, access to resources, and networks for business owners. Capital Access Group’s grant will be used to fuel Renaissance’s women programs, access to capital workshops, and Small Business-Big Impact, Renaissance’s annual event.
“The work that Renaissance does in the community is incredibly inspiring,” said Jacklyn Jordan, President and CEO of Capital Access Group. “The organization is having a profound economic impact across the Bay Area by helping low and moderate-income small business owners succeed. We are especially pleased to support Renaissance’s women’s program to help alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life for low-income women and their families.”
In its first 30 years in the Bay Area, Renaissance has helped bring more than 10,000 small businesses to market, and a recent survey by Entrepreneur Tracker, an independent evaluation by the Aspen Institute’s FIELD program, showed that one year after Renaissance clients completed 10 hours of service they experience a 38% increase in household income.
“We are so appreciative of Capital Access Group’s generous grant,” said Sharon Miller, CEO, Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center. “Capital Access has an amazing, 30-year track record of supporting California small businesses. We’re thrilled to partner with them, and we’re also excited about the opportunity to collaborate with them on access to capital events. We look forward to working with them over the coming year.”
