Queen Latifah and Lenovo know small businesses are the lifeblood of North America, and the impact they have on their communities.

Launched in 2021, the inaugural Evolve Small program has provided over $1,000,000 worth of grants and technology donations to minority-owned small businesses in the U.S. and Canada. Acknowledging the hardships small businesses continue to face amid the current economic landscape, Evolve Small builds upon last year’s success with a primary focus on minority and woman-owned businesses – all in an effort to spotlight local community gems and encourage consumers and tourists to “visit and shop small.”
