Historically Underrepresented Businesses

Connecting historically underrepresented businesses (HUBs) with resources to support their growth and enable their people.


Connecting communities

TriNet’s mission—to power the success of small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) by supporting their growth and enabling their people—drives us to strategize ways to help broaden the scope of entrepreneurship. To this end, TriNet developed a program to assist our SMB ecosystems led by historically underrepresented populations in the business community (HUBs), including persons of color, women, the differently abled, veterans, the LGBTQ+ and those organizations with a stated mission of funding, coaching, educating or working with such businesses.

The program utilizes TriNet’s SMB ecosystem to help HUB communities connect and access resources they can use. We facilitate learning and connecting in order to maximize the entrepreneurial experience and SMB success.


Program development

Working closely with various organizations and managers of government programs to identify best methodologies, known challenges and appropriate guardrails, TriNet formed a model for this business program.

This program has four key pillars:

  • Education through thought leadership
  • Sharing entrepreneurial journey experiences
  • Access to capital
  • Government programs awareness
