Comcast RISE (Representation, Investment, Strength, Empowerment) was launched in November 2020 to help small businesses struggling to recover from the ongoing impact and financial repercussions of the pandemic, social unrest and environmental events.
To date, nearly 9,500 small businesses owned by people of color or women have been selected as Comcast RISE recipients across the country. Locally, more than 700 Greater Philadelphia Area small businesses have received complimentary service packages in the form of a TV campaign, production of a TV commercial or consulting services from Effectv; or computer equipment, Internet, voice or cybersecurity from Comcast Business. Another 200 businesses in Philadelphia or Chester, PA, received RISE Investment Fund grants of $10,000. Applications for service awards are still being accepted and can be found here.
We have committed to the success of a wide range of businesses – including gyms, hair salons, restaurants, professional services, retail shops and more. We hope you will join us in supporting these local entrepreneurs.
To help you locate their services, we are proud to provide a Comcast RISE Local Buyer’s Guide, a comprehensive list of Comcast RISE recipients across the Greater Philadelphia region.
