We understand that minority-owned businesses often lack access to many factors that could contribute to their success, including start-up funding, sufficient working capital, and expertise to help them successfully scale up and build resiliency. That’s why BMO created the BMO EMpower Economic Advisory Group, dedicated exclusively to invest in and support minority-owned businesses. With our expertise in a variety of business sectors and a vast network of business and community leaders, you’ll partner with a team committed to delivering the solutions, insights and expert guidance tailored to your needs.
We also know that fostering true equality means supporting individuals and communities as well as businesses. Through BMO EMpower, we’re building on our existing efforts to advance opportunities in minority communities, beginning with our five-year, $5 billion commitment to support an inclusive economic recovery. Through these efforts, BMO remains laser-focused on promoting equity for all and addressing systemic racism in our society.
