History Month

With Nancy Lieberman

Basketball Legend Honors Women-Owned Businesses in Milwaukee

Basketball Hall of Famer and two-time Olympian Nancy Lieberman understands the challenges female entrepreneurs face across all businesses and industries. Overcoming those obstacles and celebrating the resilience to reach higher and exceed goals were at the heart of Lieberman’s message to female owners of several Milwaukee small businesses during a Back2Business Forum hosted by the Milwaukee Bucks and Fiserv.

Throughout Women’s History Month, Fiserv has honored the contributions of women past and present and recognized their social, economic, cultural and political achievements. Lieberman underscored that message, highlighting her experience as a pioneer for women in sports, a public figure, author and philanthropist through her nonprofit, Nancy Lieberman Charities.

She discussed the importance of female entrepreneurship and why equality is more relevant today than ever.

I am going to challenge you to be the G.O.A.T.  Ladies, you know what the G.O.A.T. is? The Greatest of All Time. From this day forth, you need to think that way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks … you have to love you. 

– Nancy Lieberman

As part of the Back2Business program at Fiserv Forum on March 25, leaders of women-owned small businesses received $10,000 Back2Business grants. Along with financial assistance, those businesses will receive access to leading business management solution, Clover® from Fiserv, business consulting services, strategic partnerships and community engagement – all aimed at helping them run and grow their businesses.

Women’s History Month is an opportunity to recognize the progress society has made while acknowledging there are gaps to fill. Fiserv President and Chief Executive Officer Frank Bisignano said the partnership with Lieberman and the Bucks is another meaningful way to help women-owned small businesses shift from survive to thrive and emerge stronger from a tough economic environment.

Fiserv is a proud partner with the Nancy Lieberman Charities, as we are deeply committed to helping the communities across the country and those we serve, specifically Black and minority communities.
