Small Business Resilience Cohort (SBRC) & Fund

The goal of the SBRC is to help micro-businesses rebound and fully participate in a post-Covid-19 economy. Through the generous support of Hispanics In Philanthropy, The Allapattah Collaborative has been able to provide small businesses in the commercial corridor with small cash grants to ensure they pay rent, employees, and debt. This coaching program offers business owners free professional services including:


  • Business coach and online training to rethink business model for sustainability.


  • Digital Business Coach to perform digital assessments and analyze the current digital reach of the business.


  • Certified Public Accountant to provide financial assessments and identify financial business continuity threats.

  • Accounting to help you apply for funding.


  • Coaching to help you plan and achieve your business and personal goals.


  • Legal assistance to negotiate and improve your contracts.


  • Collaboration with other businesses to succeed together.


The program is highly engaging, and it requires diligence from small business owners. On the other hand, the businesses that commit to the demand of the program can rely on a team of professionals to coach, train, and guide their business to success.
