What is the 7 Pillars™ Sustainable Business Accelerator?

We support small businesses by providing deep business supports for income growth and sustainability. Our 7 Pillars™ Accelerator advances small businesses through specialized technical assistance and connects these businesses directly to revenue and growth opportunities.

The 7 Pillars™ Accelerator integrates into the existing incubator/accelerator ecosystem by specializing: strategically on “last mile”; demographically small businesses led by historically underutilized businesses, disadvantaged persons and/or companies located in low-to-moderate income communities; and Sector-wise on a subset of business that will be determined from time-to-time.

What are the 7 Pillars™?

The 7 Pillars™ are: Strategy + Technology + Communication + Finance + Legal + Capital + People.

We believe with all 7 Pillars™, your business is structured to grow.

Without one of the 7 Pillars™, we believe your business is taking undue risk of losing market share in its industry.

Why 7 Pillars™?

“By participating in the UPMC Supplier Diversity Omicelo Cares 7 Pillars™ program, Davis Consulting Solutions was able to receive customized services for our new recruitment software and one-on-one technical assistance. All of which is critical for our success, and for that I am extremely grateful.”
