As a global leader in payments and fintech, Fiserv has proudly served millions of small businesses with technology and payment solutions for more than 35 years. We believe that companies can and should be a platform for good. The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions have had a devastating impact on small businesses across the world, and we are committed to helping this critical segment of our economy emerge stronger.
Fiserv is giving back to help small businesses get Back2Business with a programme focused on helping to jump-start ethnically diverse owned small businesses in hard-hit communities. Back2Business is designed to help stabilise and grow small businesses, with business consulting services, and financial support for uses such as: employee payroll, rent or lease payments, operations equipment and resources.
To help us elevate economic inclusion and create transformative change, we’re donating financial grants to AEO, who continue to join forces with market partners that believe in collaborating to drive wealth creation in underserved communities through entrepreneurship.
We are pleased to announce the Back2Business Grant Programme, which will award £10,000 to ethnically diverse owned small businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19 and lockdown restrictions. We are equipping these businesses with access to capital, coaching and learning opportunities to fuel the growth of our communities, creating sustainable business and shared value for all.
