MillerCoors Program Celebrates $1.4 Million Awarded in Business Grants

Celebrating 10 years of economic empowerment through its MillerCoors Urban Entrepreneurs Series (MUES), MillerCoors has awarded $1.4 million to emerging minority businesses. Throughout the years, 100 businesses have received grants to either start up or further develop their business.

The MUES program launched in 1999 to stimulate economic growth and development in urban communities. The program continues to grow, providing additional Web-based educational resources including Webinars, blogs and business advice from national judges and past winners.

Continuing its commitment to small business development, MillerCoors announced the winners of its 2009-2010 MUES Business Plan Competition. Rising to the top of a highly competitive field were five dynamic businesses who competed for an opportunity to win a total of $200,000 in business grants. The winners will be honored during a special reception hosted at MillerCoors' new corporate headquarters in Chicago.

To acknowledge the 10th anniversary, the top winner received a grant of $100,000, with four runners-up receiving grants of $25,000 each to contribute to either the start-up or expansion of their business.

This year's competition is set to launch May 1.
