We’re glad to announce that Josie Lopez, Co-Founder of Advancio has been selected to be part of the second cohort of EY Entrepreneurs Access Network (EAN) program. This initiative started in January 2021 to support Black and Latino entrepreneurs. For this purpose, the goal is to give them access to a platform of learning and reduce disparity gaps.
For 12 months, starting in February 2022, 100 participants will receive assessment and guidance through a customized learning plan focused on company’s needs. Other EY EAN’s goals include network expansion as well as entrepreneurs’ personal and professional growth.
“Our goal is to provide these innovative entrepreneurs with the support needed to scale-up their thriving companies. Also create prosperity for their businesses, their stakeholders and ultimately, their communities”.
Said Lee Henderson, Americas EY Private Leader and Executive Sponsor, EY Entrepreneurs Access Network.
Consequently, the program wants to be a space of shareable experiences and insights for women who challenge the barriers of entrepreneurship despite gender and race to contribute to their business development.
“The EY program gives you access to a strong network of business owners, the powerful Velocity tool, and an excellent peer group to foster support and mentorship. I am excited to be part of the program and look forward to the growth it will facilitate”.
Said Josie Lopez.
