Elevating Entrepreneurs

“The United States is home to some of the greatest innovators and thinkers in the world. To ensure their continued success is to ensure America’s success. Accordingly, our goal with Elevating Entrepreneurs is to help small businesses grow, prosper and create new jobs.”
—Bob McCann CEO, UBS Group Americas

Elevating Entrepreneurs is a UBS effort that empowers under-resourced, high-potential small business owners with:

  • high-impact business mentoring
  • access to capital
  • education & networking opportunities

With these resources, which aren’t always available to companies of their size, entrepreneurs are better positioned to contribute to the economic well-being of their local communities and create jobs. After all, entrepreneurs have a long track record of stimulating the American economy and generating job growth.

Elevating Entrepreneurs is an initiative led by UBS Community Affairs & Corporate Responsibility Americas (PDF, 1 MB), executed in partnership with UBS Bank USA Community Development Group (PDF, 1 MB), as well as the engagement of our staff across the Americas.
