Communities around the globe recognize economic development as the key to addressing many social and economic challenges including poverty, unemployment, lifestyle amenities, and the list goes on.

We selected Ascendant Global to support our effort to develop ecosystems in three cities that support the creation of scalable businesses owned by people of color, because we know how vital opportunity is to the future of our nation’s economy and because we know how valuable national experience and a deep understanding of how to develop inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems is to our work.
