Lenovo announced its Evolve Small program will be providing financial support to small businesses across North America.
The initiative is designed to provide financial aid, technological resources, community support, and business mentorship primarily to minority and woman-owned businesses.
Launched last summer, the inaugural Evolve Small program provided more than $1,000,000 worth of small business grants and technology donations to minority-owned businesses across the U.S. and Canada.
As part of the initiative, Lenovo, in partnership with Microsoft and AMD, will continue to fund grants, technology upgrades, and mentorship opportunities to small businesses throughout the US and Canada.
As part of the program, select small businesses will have the opportunity to partner with a high-profile celebrity. They can leverage custom marketing materials and mentorship from the celebrity partner and Lenovo Evolve Small Ambassadors.
Also, these small businesses will receive the technological support needed to implement systems and processes that allow them to elevate their day-to-day business operations.
Lenovo is also partnering with entrepreneurship and community building non-profit Goodie Nation to further reach and support small businesses with additional grants.
