Seeking Business Participants

The Kellogg School of Management and JPMorgan Chase have partnered to offer ASCEND - Business Growth VI, a live virtual management education program. The partnership seeks minority-owned and other businesses located in Chicago's under-resourced neighborhoods on the South and West Sides, or those who hire a significant percentage of employees from those areas.

Businesses with revenue from $500,000 to $20,000,000, and employing five or more persons are the best fit. However, companies with lower incomes but with high growth potential will also be considered.

The partnership aligns management education, market access, and capital access to grow businesses and jobs in low and moderate-income (LMI) communities in Chicago.  It also develops a network that links business schools, market access organizations, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI), and Chase Small Business Banking.
