For 6 years (2009-2015), the Alliance provided cohort-style mentorship to small business owners from diverse backgrounds in the Bay Area. Since PROPEL launched in 2008, 7% of the graduates crossed $1 million in revenue which is at least three times the national average for women and diverse business owners (Forbes April, 2015).
The Alliance no longer offers PROPEL, and is currently pivoting its programmatic work to connecting a rich but disparate ecosystem of business service providers and lenders/funders in the Bay Area, and to connect local, diverse entrepreneurs to these resources.
