The Dallas Mavericks are now accepting applications for the Mavs Business Assist (MBA) program, an initiative to empower 100 diverse entrepreneurs with the access to knowledge, tools and support they need to succeed and grow their business. In the MBA’s second year, the Dallas Mavericks announce a new multi-year sponsorship with ZenBusiness as the presenting sponsor. Entrepreneurs in the program will receive access to the ZenBusiness platform with tools and services to run and grow a successful business.
