Chase commitment to support small businesses and entrepreneurs

JPMorgan Chase continues to invest in its Small
Business Forward
 initiative which aims to help small businesses run
by women, minorities and veterans with both the capital and technical
assistance they need to grow.

Chase for Business shares research, resources and thought leadership
through local and national events, including the release of its annual Business
Leaders Outlook report
and online Business
Resource Center
.

Additionally, the firm recently announced the:

  • Creation of Advancing
    Black Pathways (ABP)
    to build on the firm’s existing efforts
    helping black Americans achieve economic success. In conjunction with
    the launch of this initiative, JPMorgan Chase has also expanded the Entrepreneurs
    of Color Fund
    to the Greater Washington region, providing capital
    and business training to underserved minority entrepreneurs in the
    region. To date, the program has provided more than $40 million in
    funding and now operates in five regional markets.
  • To support our returning service members, JPMorgan
    Chase also recently announced
    additional support for Bunker
    Labs
    , a nonprofit that helps active duty and veteran-owned
    startups. As Bunker Labs continues to inspire veterans to start their
    own businesses, JPMorgan Chase’s new $3 million commitment supports
    the organization’s national expansion and provides the necessary
    education, resources and networks to veteran
    entrepreneurs
    .
