Rock County Jumpstart is a collaborative initiative designed to improve the likelihood of success of minority business owners. Our team has a specific focus on providing culturally-competent, culturally-relevant, and culturally-sensitive services designed to address the specific and unique needs of Black business owners in Rock County. We provide the training, tools, and resources these entrepreneurs need to start, grow, and scale their business.
We collaborate with local and regional organizations that fully support our mission and vision and seek to establish mutually beneficial partnerships that help us achieve our goals.
We advocate on behalf of Black business owners with local business and political leaders and economic development stakeholders to encourage them to establish economic development initiatives that improve access to the capital and resources that are necessary to work towards economic equity for minority business owners in Rock County. And, through our partnership with the Wisconsin Latino Chamber of Commerce, we support businesses owned and operated by Latino business owners.
