Recently, Mike McArdle, Comcast’s big south region senior vice president, announced at the Russell Innovation Center for Entrepreneurs in Atlanta that Comcast RISE will be offering small businesses in the area business consultation services, education resources, monetary grants, and creative production, media, and technology makeovers. In addition, CEO Jay Bailey received a generous million donation from Comcast to further enhance RICE’s digital tools and support small businesses in the city.

Pinky Cole, CEO of Slutty Vegan and Bar Vegan, spoke at the event and emphasized the importance of programs like Comcast RISE in helping small businesses achieve their goals and contribute to the community’s growth.

The application period for Comcast RISE will run from May 1 to May 31, with grants set to be awarded in August 2024.
