The OneMillion Entrepreneurs is a movement focused on launching, growing, and reinventing small businesses. We aim to expand our reach beyond the southwest region to every state in the U.S. Founded by a group of social-entrepreneurs and corporate leaders dedicated to the power of shaping better societies.
In 2017 we made a bold prediction. We asked people to imagine if you woke up one day and one million businesses no longer existed. Your favorite coffee shop: gone. Your child’s daycare, Friday night pizza place, neighborhood dry cleaner, dentist, and hair salon: all disappeared.
We never imagined our prediction would come true. In 2020, the world pandemic closed thousands of local small businesses.
So, we introduced the idea of a “new normal” forging a path to improve the economy scaling up businesses that are self-sufficient and determined.
We believe the people and resources you need to succeed already exist — you simply need to get connected to them.
OneMillion Entrepreneurs serves as a hub that makes meaningful connections so everyone can help each other and thrive together.
Entrepreneurs make a huge impact on all of us. They’re vital for our daily lives and for the future.

We believe the people and resources you need to succeed already exist — you simply need to get connected to them. OneMeAZ serves as a hub that makes meaningful connections so everyone can help each other and thrive together.
We believe in dreaming big. Solving complex problems and innovating requires taking risks and trusting that what was previously considered impossible is now possible.
We believe working together will get you farther than working alone. From our physical hub to our online forum, entrepreneurs have access to an inclusive community and proven process that facilitates collaboration and acceleration.
We believe in being transparent and speaking hard truths to all of our entrepreneurs, sponsors, and stakeholders so we all have the real information we need to make smart decisions.
