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 social unrest have had a devastating impact on small businesses across the country, 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 program focused on helping to jump-start Black- and minority-owned small businesses in hard-hit communities. Back2Business is designed to help stabilize and grow small businesses, with business consulting services, leading Clover payments technology solutions from Fiserv and financial support for employee payroll, rent or lease payments, operations equipment and resources. To help us elevate economic inclusion and create transformative change, we’re partnering with AEO, who continues to join forces with market partners that believe in collaborating to drive wealth creation in underserved communities through entrepreneurship.
In partnership with AEO, we are pleased to announce the Fiserv Back2Business Grants for Small Business Program, which will award up to $10,000 to Black- and minority-owned businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19 and social unrest. We are equipping these businesses with vital education, coaching, and capital to truly fuel growth of our communities, creating sustainable business and shared value for all.
