Uplift Program Application

Hyphenate strives to uplift motivated and invested entrepreneurs and businesses from underrepresented, underserved or historically marginalized communities that are also facing economic challenges. We’ve heard the term, “untapped,” as well, which is perhaps a more fitting term. There is untapped potential in all of us and we are here to help you tap yours!

No one builds a successful business on their own and we believe in the power of paying it forward. As such, we ask that all accepted applicants pay it forward in their community. If this is not something you are able to do, please reconsider your application.

This program allows you to pay a sliding scale fee or alternative payment model in order to afford high-quality, professional website design, graphic design and marketing services so you can focus on other important aspects of running or launching your business.

To better assess how best to serve your needs and if we are a good fit together, we will need the following information.  In addition, we will schedule a required video call with you to meet with you “in person” and get to know you better!

We reserve one slot each month for selected applicants and a have a wait list, so please apply as early as possible.

Thank you for your time; we look forward to hearing about your business!
