Ready to take your business to the next level?

In partnership with the nationally recognized Rising Tide Capital, MAM is thrilled to launch Innova - Community Business Academy. This program is dedicated to empowering underserved entrepreneurs and small businesses in local communities.


By supporting these small businesses, we not only create jobs and support economic development but also work towards reducing disparities. Through this work, we are investing in people who hope and dream about what is possible for their families and our neighborhoods.


For low-income earners, owning their own small business can mean better wages and more flexibility than traditional workplaces. However, starting and managing a business can be overwhelming. That's why Innova provides hands-on training in business planning and management. Our goal is to unlock their full potential, create opportunities for growth, and provide support in accessing capital.

What is taught in the program?

  • Comprehensive entrepreneurship knowledge from industry experts

  • Resources and tools for launching and growing a business

  • Personalized guidance and mentoring

  • Essential business skills development

  • Hands-on activities and real-world case studies

  • Networking and expanding professional connections

  • Vibrant community for learning, inspiration, and collaboration in entrepreneurial endeavors

Who is the target audience for Innova?

  • Small business owners seeking growth and expansion opportunities.

  • Established entrepreneurs looking to refine their product or service offerings.

  • Individuals with existing businesses aiming to enhance their profitability and success.
