Star Boston Celtics wing Jaylen Brown announces partnership to support women entrepreneurs

·2 min read

Star Boston Celtics wing Jaylen Brown recently announced on Twitter that he plans to partner with Legal Zoom’s “Fast Break 4 Small Biz” program in support of women starting their own businesses to be their own bosses.

Citing a recent Legal Zoom survey that found among 60% of their respondents started a business explicitly to be their own boss, Brown announced his partnership with the organization. The study cited by Brown notes how while women are part of a rising tide of entrepreneurship, still find themselves in a sheer minority (just 4%) of small business funding from traditional financial institutions — and just 2% of funding from venture capital sources.

The Georgia native shared how he hopes to help with “providing equitable resources for women” through his partnership with Legal Zoom.

Brown is a longtime activist and supporter of causes that seek to level the playing field for historically underserved communities around the US.
