Helping Minority Entrepreneurs Succeed
For nearly 50 years, Travelers has partnered with the Metropolitan Economic Development Association (Meda) to provide one-on-one business consulting, access to capital and connections to market opportunities for minority entrepreneurs in Minnesota. Through these services, minority-owned businesses can become sustainable employers that create quality jobs with livable wages and health care benefits. In addition to providing an annual operating grant, Travelers participates on Meda’s board of directors and has hosted Meda’s annual Million Dollar Challenge for Minority Entrepreneurs.
Travelers has been a longtime financial supporter of the organization, providing more than $300,000 in support over the past 10 years.
