Creating a future where business owners, workers, and their communities grow and thrive together.

Our Bounce Forward program helps women and minority-owned small businesses around the country more effectively tap the collective intelligence, creativity, and motivation of their teams as a means to improved profitability and shared prosperity.

Even prior to the ever-evolving demands introduced by the pandemic, a 2017 survey found 72% of small business owners felt overwhelmed and believed better delegation and communication were key skills they needed to develop.

We know all this is possible because collectively we’ve supported countless teams and small businesses to transform how they work together. Our team brings together a brilliant scientist, a savvy business consultant, and a sought after leadership expert who is also a comedian. Together we’ve designed a one-of-a-kind, cutting-edge curriculum that’s been honed over decades of consulting with Fortune 50 organizations like Microsoft and Costco. It’s fun, it’s effective, and your support has the potential to improve the lives and livelihoods of workers in industries such as retail, hospitality, food & beverage service, and other service-based businesses.
