CONVENE. CONNECT. COLLABORATE.

The Create Campaign, Inc. features a series of original programs that bring diverse entrepreneurs together with service partners to help strengthen minority business ownership.

Prosper Community Contractor Collective

Calling all small & emerging minority-owned Wichita area contractors in disciplines including:

lawncare • hauling • painting • electrical • and small repair companies 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

In an effort to provide ongoing professional development and training to minority businesses, Create Campaign, Inc. presents Prosper. This initiative will provide contractor education in collaboration with Kansas Business Services.

 

Participating contractors will then be eligible to bid on home and neighborhood improvement projects generated by residents who have been impacted by the installation of transmission lines in central-northeast Wichita.

Those residents will assist Create Campaign, Inc. in awarded funded contracts to companies participating in the Prosper Community Contractor Collective.

What People Are Saying About the

Create Campaign

- I am so grateful to have had an opportunity to attend a Create Campaign forum. I discovered several valuable resources and it was comforting to know that there is a great support system for small business owners here in Wichita. 

- When I hear the words Create Campaign I think small business empowerment; small business information; build your network. I have learned the difference between a small business and a hobby. I have several new contacts and ideas on how to create my new small business when I'm ready. Knowledge is power. I had no idea there was so much help here for small business development!

 - I look forward each year because it inspires me to set goals and follow my dreams.

- I must find funding. It's time for me to take off. I am grateful for the access of information.

- ...it helped me really understand the next steps I need to take to grow my business.
