How we help aspiring entrepreneurs:


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.
