Workshops and webinars are designed to be interactive, incorporating practical exercises and case studies to facilitate hands-on learning.

Mentors work closely with entrepreneurs, offering guidance, reviewing marketing strategies, providing feedback, and assisting in overcoming obstacles. The mentorship program extends beyond the training period, allowing for ongoing support and regular check-ins to monitor progress and address evolving needs.

Peer-to-Peer Networking:

  • We facilitate peer-to-peer networking opportunities, creating a community where minority-owned businesses can connect, share experiences, and learn from one another. This collaborative environment fosters idea exchange, collaboration, and the formation of valuable business relationships.

Program Evaluation:

  • We regularly evaluate the effectiveness of the training and mentoring program through participant feedback, progress assessments, and tracking key performance indicators. This evaluation process allows us to refine and enhance the program based on the needs and preferences of participating businesses.
