BCG Spark: Empowering Businesses and Their Communities

BCG Spark promotes community development and economic growth by working with minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs) through consulting and partnerships with our broader business ecosystem of corporate partners, capital providers, educational institutions, and nonprofits.

By providing these businesses with pro bono access to consulting, resources, and our broader network of partners, BCG Spark helps accelerate MWBE growth, create jobs, and drive community development through positive economic impact and wealth creation.

How We Work with Entrepreneurs and Their Communities

BCG Spark is built on a simple idea: connecting our staff and experts with a diverse group of innovative entrepreneurs to help them fulfill their companies’ promise. Over the course of several months, we help participants zero in on core business opportunities and challenges, accelerate their companies’ growth, and deepen their impact; we then activate an ecosystem of corporate partners, capital providers, educational institutions, and nonprofits that help companies sustain their growth over the long term.

For each project, BCG Spark works with the business owner to deliver a variety of benefits, including consulting support, access to BCG’s experts and partners, one-on-one business coaching, leadership advice, and panel sessions on topics such as sales and marketing and operations. This is furthered by our extensive network of MWBE ecosystem partners, which provide access to additional expertise, capital, customers, and markets to help fuel growth.

Our Five Categories of Support For Minority-Owned Businesses

Working with BCG Spark not only provided us with tangible resources to scale, but it almost felt like “business therapy” where you can share your thoughts and feelings as a startup founder. This was an incredible experience and highly recommended for anyone looking to solve complex business problems.

The BCG Spark program was an outstanding experience! Having the opportunity to network with executives from BCG, Majira and other companies was extremely beneficial. Our company garnered valuable business resources, expertise, and professional support that has allowed us to overcome challenges, as well as achieve significant growth.
