Comcast RISE returns to support local small businesses!

Beginning on June 1, and through June 30, eligible businesses in Portland can apply for a grant package at ComcastRISE.com.

Presented by Comcast May 17, 2023

This year, Comcast announced that their small business grant program, Comcast RISE, will grant 100 additional businesses in Portland with comprehensive grant packages that include business consultation services, educational resources, a $5,000 monetary grant, creative production, a media schedule, and a technology makeover. 

A total of 100 grants per city, or 500 grants overall, will be announced in August and awarded in September 2023.

“As small businesses transition from pandemic recovery to a focus on expansion and growth, Comcast RISE is proud to help strengthen and empower these deserving businesses and entrepreneurs.”

The comprehensive grant package will include:

  • CONSULTATION: Assessment of business and tactical planning; business to business coaching; and mentorship to advise on how to grow business.

  • EDUCATION RESOURCES: Educational content and resources tailored to individual companies based on where they are in their business lifecycle.

  • MONETARY GRANT: $5,000 monetary grant to invest in growth and sustainability.

  • CREATIVE PRODUCTION & MEDIA: Turnkey production of a 30-second TV commercial, plus a media strategy consultation and 180-day media placement schedule.

  • TECHNOLOGY MAKEOVER: Computer equipment and Internet, Voice and Cybersecurity services for 12 months. (Taxes and other fees may still apply for tech makeover services.)

Comcast RISE stands for Representation, Investment, Strength and Empowerment. The program was created in November 2020 to help small businesses hardest hit by COVID-19, by providing the grants needed to survive and recover. Comcast RISE will evolve from helping businesses survive the pandemic, to helping businesses and their communities thrive with a focus on economic growth.

Comcast RISE is part of Project UP, the company’s comprehensive initiative to advance digital equity and help build a future of unlimited possibilities. For eligibility requirements and how to apply for the grant program visit www.ComcastRISE.com.
