We congratulate the 11 diverse business who were selected to be part of the AGAP Program Cohort which culminated 12 weeks of hard work on October 27th. This group has dedicated the last 3 months to learning, sharing best practices, and working diligently to apply what they have learned, with a common goal of growing and scaling their businesses for the long term. All this dedication has occurred despite COVID-19; they stayed the course, were steadfast, resilient and most of all agile. They have also managed to successfully keep their businesses open and thriving, with an overall 14% increase in revenue and added 10 new jobs over the past 5 months. Special thank you to our collaborative partners WellFargo and the Morehouse Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center.
