Aspiring Entrepreneur Program

The Aspiring Entrepreneur Program is a 10-week cohort program focused on education. Participants will leave with a validated business idea, an action plan and a new entrepreneurial mindset that you can use to excel in your current job, leverage relationships and, of course, start or maintain a business.

Program includes:

  • Strategic planning
  • Business validation
  • Curriculum and materials 
  • Certification support
  • Mentoring
  • Networking events

How we help:


The program isn’t a business class. Instead, it is a preventive maintenance step to enhance the entrepreneurial mindset and develop functional skill sets to see and act like an entrepreneur. 

How We Do It

The Aspiring Entrepreneur Program includes business development-focused workshops combined with confidential, one-on-one counseling in the areas of business management, financial literacy and marketing.
