The CHAMPIONS Initiative from American Family Insurance offers a unique opportunity for business owners to develop relationships with their Sourcing and Procurement team, along with other members of the Enterprise. The CHAMPIONS Initiative focus is to assist business owners with solving specific challenges, such as the development of multi-year business plans to achieve defined goals. Other areas of focus include:

– Sales and brand awareness
– Access to Capital
– Attracting and retaining talent
– Product development
– Cyber Security

CHAMPIONS Advisors act as both a primary point-of-contact and an ally for the duration of the yearlong program, educating and inspiring business owners to pursue their dreams with confidence. The CHAMPIONS Initiative goal is to make business owners “contract ready” for strategic partnerships and opportunities with the Enterprise, and broader business community.
