What’s the story: Through the UPS Ignite Program, UPS has partnered with Accion to deliver $100,000 in grants to under-funded businesses and entrepreneurs.

The Accion Opportunity Fund creates an inclusive, healthy financial system by offering grants and small business loans. They also provide educational resources, coaching and support networks in English and Spanish.

What’s the latest: UPS is happy to announce the ten recipients of this year’s grant program – each business was selected based on their vision, passion and resilience.

Each recipient will receive $10,000 to help fuel their future growth:

Building a better world: In 2022 UPS launched UPS Ignite and a partnership with the Russell Innovation Center for Entrepreneurs to elevate underrepresented founders and the businesses they lead nationwide. Through a $1.25 million investment from UPS and The UPS Foundation, these efforts will reach more than 250 small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) over the next three years.
