“We are extremely pleased to sponsor the Millionaire Mastermind Academy programming to help enrich the lives of people in our community,” said Michael Fisher, COUNTRY Financial Agency Vice Community Business Development.

Corporate partnerships serve to provide mentorship and entrepreneurial training for women of color and minority women business owners, with the aim of helping them achieve sustainable long-term success and freedom from poverty. The Millionaire Mastermind Academy educates and supports the growth of women-owned businesses while supporting local economies. It has supported more than 5,000 women entrepreneurs in creating and launching successful small businesses.
According to a recent report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, women-owned businesses were disproportionately affected during the pandemic and fewer expect recovery in the year to come. They reported significantly less optimistic plans for future investments, revenue projects and staffing then their male-owned counterparts.
To combat this trend, Trayham created the Millionaire Mastermind Academy’s entrepreneurship accelerator program to help grow women-owned businesses and support underserved communities. Through Corporate partnerships the program offers scholarships to help more women out of poverty through empowered entrepreneurship.
