ARG Cultivators Community, Our mission is to actively create parity by developing the standards of change, as we support minority and women-owned businesses providing access to capital and business development as they scale and grow their business.
ARG Cultivators Community was formed as an Arizona non-profit, late 2020 (501(c)(3) finalizing) to bridge the economic wealth gap for minority and women-owned businesses. The pandemic exposed the biases that exist in the business ecosystem and the impact that they have on people of color and women-owned businesses. According to an article in National Geographic, 41% of black-owned firms closed within 4 months of the pandemic. ARG is a conduit for change, helping to strengthen businesses across the nation.
