Anne Arundel County has launched a new business resource program to assist small, minority, women and veteran-owned businesses in the region.
The Inclusive Ventures Program (IVP), managed by the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation (AAEDC), will help retain and expand small businesses in the county, while helping these businesses thrive and create jobs to support the local economy.
IVP will offer a variety of resources to businesses, including education, mentorship, access to capital, and consultations with experts across several fields. Businesses interested in the new program can apply by February 19 on AAEDC’s website.
“Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation has once again thought outside the box to create a program that goes directly to the needs of county businesses, this time specifically small minority and women-owned businesses that have been hit hardest by the pandemic economy,” said County Executive Steuart Pittman, Jr.
