Comcast RISE seeking applications for aid to small businesses

Salt Lake City — It’s been a tough year for business owners around Utah as they worked to navigate the impacts of Covid. While much of the state is reopening, recovery for many businesses is still lagging. 

Comcast RISE, a multi-year, multi-faceted initiative launched to help strengthen small businesses owned by people of color in Utah, is addressing many of the technology, marketing, and media services to help these businesses recover and thrive. The Comcast RISE program is now accepting applications for assistance from eligible small businesses through July 31. 
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.)
