Uptima Entrepreneur Cooperative
Uptima Entrepreneur Cooperative (Uptima) provides holistic and culturally relevant education, advising, and community to support diverse entrepreneurs in creating thriving businesses in service to their communities. In 2020, Uptima partnered with AmbitioUS and SEED Commons in the Grant & Loan Fund for Early-Stage Arts, Creative, and Cultural Cooperatives program. Through this program Uptima was contracted to provide cooperative-specific business and technical assistance to the five artist cooperatives that were selected to receive grants. AmbitioUS is providing Uptima a one-year project support grant to provide continued technical assistance support to selected early stage cooperatives.
