The Supply Change Alliance (SCA) is a minority business enterprise support initiative which provides qualified minority business owners with free and/or deeply discounted access to the founding companies’ services. LicenseLogix, LLC., Interpreters and Translators Inc., and Network Support Co are the three companies behind this philanthropic program.
Our idea was born out of the need to effect real change when it comes to equalizing the business playing field and to directly benefit minority entrepreneurs in helping them realize their entrepreneurial visions.
The initiative is designed to encourage minority entrepreneurs to follow their dreams, which are often unattainable due to unequal access to capital. The SCA and the faces of our companies behind it aim to address this issue by eliminating a portion of start-up costs and operating expenses. We aim to do that for qualified minority business owners* through valuable services which amount up to $20,000 worth of savings.
Our initiative will help with business licensing costs, digital marketing, translation, web hosting and development, as well as IT support. We are looking to break the barrier for minority entrepreneurs, who historically have struggled due to lack of access to capital, support network and other opportunities.
The Center for Global Policy Solutions reported in 2016 that discrimination in business ownership is costing the country as many as nine million jobs and up to $300 billion.
We want to change this, now and this is where The Supply Change Alliance comes in- you supply the ideas, we supply the change!
*Business must meet the minority-owned business criteria set forth by the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Minority Business Development Agency.
