PROGRESSWORKS WAS CREATED IN 2016 TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO PARTICIPATE IN U.S. JOB CREATION AND RETENTION
Our focus is to create jobs, build infrastructure and support small businesses in America.
The American Dream has become more difficult than ever to achieve in our current economy.
Main Street USA is also facing the prospect reality of technology automation and outsourcing.
ProgressWorks' mission and need is now amplified by the COVID-19 crisis, which is leading to the closure of businesses and the loss of more jobs. Many more jobs will be lost as businesses continue to struggle.
Let's reduce the challenges businesses face when seeking capital for job creation.
Investing in people will 100% help with growth and sustainability.
