She's Next, Empowered by Visa
Visa’s expansion in Atlanta builds on the company’s commitments to serving its communities. Visa has had a firsthand look at the area’s inspiring entrepreneurs and local businesses through programs such as She’s Next, Empowered by Visa, an initiative focused on empowering female and Black-owned small businesses.
