Meadow Gerrish has always dreamed of making her mark on the fashion world and bringing those around her along for the ride. She started her eco-conscious boutique, Meadow Collective, in 2005, but the journey didn’t always go as smoothly as she expected. “Becoming a shop owner was an evolution [that was] a little by accident. But nothing is really by accident, is it?” says Gerrish. In October 2022, Gerrish was forwarded an email with information on Comcast RISE, a program formed in late 2020 to give minority, small businesses owners the resources they need to survive and thrive through the COVID-19 pandemic. Comcast RISE, which stands for Representation, Investment, Strength and Empowerment, had already invested $1 million in small South Florida businesses in 2021 owned by people of color, including Black, Indigenous, Hispanic and Asian American owners. On the heels of its one year anniversary, Comcast RISE announced that they would be accepting applications again, in order to invest another $1 million in additional South Florida small businesses – now, including women-owned businesses. A month later, Gerrish was thrilled to be awarded a $10,000 grant.
