Empower DYK

Did you know that according to the Illinois Small Business Association, a bit over 98% of the businesses within Illinois are Small Businesses? That means statistically, you can probably name most of the larger IL businesses off the top of your head! So, if you approach a store on the street, if you can't name it immediately, chances are it's your local Mom & Pop!

We at Empower strive to find ways to help each and every one of them. Be it via our incredibly successful mentorship program or through simple support and resources, we're here to help!

Check out the resources or maybe join that ever-successful mentoring program? We'll be waiting regardless.
