Uptima Entrepreneur Cooperative is committed to providing greater access to entrepreneurship training and advising, and does not discriminate against applicants, members, or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, veteran’s status, sexual orientation or identity, or disability.

Uptima Entrepreneur Cooperative believes entrepreneurship is a means for closing the racial wealth gap. As such, we collect certain personal information about gender, race/ethnicity, household income, and the number of people in household for impact reporting and to gain funding to increase the financial accessibility of our programs.
