America = Empowerment … through Entrepreneurship
America = ® is a positive social movement brand that empowers people through entrepreneurship and proudly supports the Honor Loan® Entrepreneurship Program, a nonprofit empowering people of all ages and backgrounds through entrepreneurship education, mentorship, and seed funding.
How We Help:
Entrepreneurship is at the heart of America's legacy and promise. Our country was founded and built by entrepreneurs.
We therefore proudly partner with the Honor Loan® Entrepreneurship Program - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit initiative that empowers people of all ages and backgrounds to think with an entrepreneurial mindset and achieve their entrepreneurial aspirations through experiential entrepreneurship education, mentorship, and seed funding. This program was incubated at Brown University and partners with nonprofits, corporations, government entities, and educational institutions to provide entrepreneurship inspiration, education, and opportunities. The United States Chamber of Commerce, CBS and NBC have featured stories connected to the Honor Loan® Entrepreneurship Program.
A portion of sales is donated to the Honor Loan® Entrepreneurship Program to empower people of all ages and backgrounds. Please also consider making your tax deductible donation directly to the Honor Loan® Entrepreneurship Program.
America is like a person. It goes through trials and tribulations but deep down it is a good person with a good heart. America Equals is the brand that sees the goodness in America.
Our team has traveled the country and lived in many different cities. The one thing that continued to surprise and inspire us was the innate goodness of the people we met along the way.
Yes, there are strong voices out there shouting our differences, focusing on what divides us and yes, sometimes they seem very loud. But what we also found was a quiet force, one that built strength in small moments (holding a door, welcoming a new face to the group, encouraging a friend or family member) and grew with bigger ones (volunteering, tutoring, donating). This force was a constant in every city and town we visited or called home for a time. It covered a much greater distance than those booming, negative shouts and we wanted to give it the megaphone.
So a few years ago, we created America = ® to amplify and harness the commonalities that unite us. We want it to inspire more people to take up the mic for what they believe in and share their voice. We believe eventually these voices will unite and, in a true comic book ending, crush the villain or at least show that we are all more alike than we may think.
