KeyBank Business Boost & Build


welcome On behalf of KeyBank and JumpStart Inc., we are excited to share highlights from the second year of the KeyBank Business Boost & Build program in Ohio and New York.   The KeyBank Business Boost & Build program is a major expansion of a decade-plus relationship between KeyBank and JumpStart seeking to help nearly 5,000 entrepreneurs create more jobs in their communities from the banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati reaching all the way to the Hudson River in Albany, NY. Year one of this four-year program laid an important foundation in creating the structures and relationships necessary to launch this work. In year two, the KeyBank Business Boost & Build program has begun to mature and is on track to meeting its ambitious goals. At the halfway point, the KeyBank Business Boost & Build program has already served thousands of startups, small businesses and microenterprises across ten cities in two states, the majority of which have been led by women and people of color. In the next two years, it will serve thousands more, while continuing to connect hundreds of students and adult jobseekers to workforce opportunities in their communities. As you will see, it’s been a full and productive year for the KeyBank Business Boost & Build program. We hope this report gives you a glimpse into the important work being done to build a stronger economic future in Ohio and New York through the power of entrepreneurship and inclusion. Sincerely,

Don Graves

Head of Corporate Philanthropy and Community Relations, KeyBank

AKRON In January, Akron Urban League and ConxusNEO announced the launch of IGNITE, a center-supported program designed to provide professional skills training and certifications, along with career oriented job placement services, helping to fill existing employment gaps within the community, while affording participants the opportunity to attain meaningful employment and earn a livable wage. The program leverages ConxusNEO's strong regional data connections and their ability to bring the voice of the employer to the work. The collaboration also adds the strong technical expertise of coding academy We Can Code IT, bringing multiple forces together to create generationally life-changing opportunities for citizens of Northeast Ohio.

Marginalized populations are being left out at the same time employers are in a persistent struggle to find talent. We're excited about the potential for this partnership to tap into a talent source that is often overlooked by companies.�

CINCINNATI Funding to the Cincinnati Minority Business Collaborative (CMBC) is supporting a new partnership with Miami University (MU) to make available research and IP developed at MU to Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs). CMBC is developing a service model (including equipment, space and expertise) to accelerate MBE health and beauty product manufacturers. The CMBC is also thinking beyond supplier diversity to help MBEs consider and navigate acquisition as a pathway for MBE growth. The organization is currently leveraging an opportunity with The Cincinnati Minority Business Accelerator to create a best practice playbook, which will have a tremendous national impact on MBEs, while gaining additional visibility for its collaboration and deal flow model.

COLUMBUS Funding to Venture for America (VFA) through the center has increased cultural competency and the development of national best practices, including travel stipends and diversity/equity/inclusion tours. This has created stronger connections to local communities and the deliberate inclusion of women and people of color in VFA Selection Day interviews as well as the VFA Midwest Job Fair. Meanwhile, the center also funded a new partner in Columbus in 2019, Per Scholas, whose On-Ramps to Tech Careers program will increase the pipeline of under-represented individuals to the Columbus tech workforce. The workforce collaborative [Per Scholas] will be leading has the potential to not only diversify the Columbus tech ecosystem but also strengthen it significantly by including a more diverse range of skills, voices and experiences.�

DAYTON Dayton’s center-supported Pathways program continued to grow in year two, partnering with the University of Dayton to plan the establishment of an incubator in West Dayton focused on entrepreneurship and workforce while serving high-potential MBEs through its MBA capstone program.

ALBANY Funding in Albany continues to support a four-organization collaborative led by the Center for Economic Growth (CEG) focused on lowering barriers to entry for underserved entrepreneurs and creating a spirit of cooperation rather than competition between service providers. In year two, this collaborative has grown to include the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) University of Albany SEED Program. BAKE FOR YOU (FROM LEFT): Paul Stewart of the Community Loan Fund (CLF), Jennifer Kilcoyne from the SBDC, Justin Cary and Linda Kindlon from Bake for You and Carol O’Connell from Excelsior Growth Fund (EGF). CLF provided early financing for Bake for You and EGF approved a new term loan for the business in 2018 to fund an expansion project that has created eight new jobs. The SBDC has also provided critical technical assistance to the business, including help obtaining a Microenterprise Grant to fund their expansion.

BUFFALO Funding in Buffalo supports a three-organization collaborative that now includes the Beverly Gray Business Exchange Center (BGBEC) as the lead organization. Strategically located in a community historically cut off from entrepreneurial support, BGBEC and partners are working to prepare businesses for capital and working with capital providers on appropriate loan products.
