Past Business Support Partnerships:

 

County Support Partnership

Digital Retail Support Services for Santa Cruz County 

Supports for Small Businesses, Artists and Non-Profits. Startup Unidos developed and implemented the county’s first small business outreach strategy and marketing plan to support small businesses, in collaboration with the county’s ARPA program. Startup Unidos provided comprehensive bilingual radio, social media, and traditional print media strategy, messaging and execution, and developed and supported small business workshop content development, delivery and logistics. This enabled local small businesses and nonprofits to successfully access information about county small business supports available to them.

 

 

State Support Partnership

Arizona Small Business Development Center (AZSBDC)

Our approach is based on a social equity model: we put boots on the ground to ask the right, important questions so that the end user is put first. This is the fabric of how we operate at Startup Unidos.

    • Recovery is an ambiguous and complex word and there’s no one answer to the diverse needs of Arizona’s small businesses. That’s why we’ve joined forces with Arizona community-led organizations serving all 15 counties across the state to launch the AZNavigator. The AZNavigator is a team of 10 organizations working together across Arizona to improve quality and access to small business support services. From startups to established businesses, the network of experts can help stabilize, reinvent, or scale
