In a historic initiative, Morgan Stanley, National Urban League Urban Empowerment Fund (NULUEF), National Development Council (NDC), and the Urban League of Broward County (ULBC) have teamed up to provide access to capital and business education for minority entrepreneurs in Florida.

“We are thrilled to partner once again with the National Urban League, National Development Council and local partners to provide minority owned businesses in Florida with greater access to capital through the Capital Access Fund,” said Carla A. Harris, vice chairman, Global Wealth Management, and head of the Multicultural Client Strategy Group, Morgan Stanley. “By providing an initial $2 million in start-up capital, we are proud to have an impact on the economic growth in this community by offering the entrepreneurs who build community wealth with the capital and support services necessary to not only survive, but thrive.”
