Fiserv provides small business solutions and resources designed to support veterans and military-connected entrepreneurs. In 2022, we launched a series of Military Entrepreneurship Forums. These forums - leveraging our partnerships with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, the Small Business Administration, regional chambers and others - bring together local public and private sectors in large cities to create connectivity, networking opportunities and resources for veteran and military-spouse business owners.
In 2020, Fiserv launched Back2Business to support small, minority-owned businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the program's inception, we have provided more than 1,400 grants in the U.S. and nearly 200 grants in the U.K., totaling approximately $16 million in grants.
