2022 Comcast RISE grant applications launched

Salt Lake City — Comcast RISE, a multi-year, multi-faceted initiative launched to help strengthen small businesses owned by people of color in Utah, is expanding to include all women-owned small businesses in Comcast’s service area.
Through this program, business owners can apply for:

  • Marketing Services from Effectv, the advertising sales division of Comcast Cable, and its creative agency. This includes a TV media campaign, inclusive of the creative production and/or advertising and marketing consultations.​​​​​​
  • A technology makeover that includes state-of-the-art equipment and technology upgrades from Comcast Business and internet, voice and cybersecurity services for up to a 12-month period. (Taxes and other fees may still apply for technology makeover services.)

Since the program’s inception, Comcast announced over 20 Utah small businesses as Comcast RISE recipients. This includes Brickyard Kennel, iPawd, inc. a woman-owned business and Comcast RISE recipient.

“Our family business is largely dependent on the travel industry, which was greatly impacted by Covid,” says Margaret Wakeham, owner and general manager, iPawd, inc. “Now, as we work to recover, Comcast RISE has provided the computers needed to work remotely and tablets that will help with contactless check-in and reservations.”

Comcast RISE is now accepting application through June 17. To apply for the program, please visit here.
