Break through systemic barriers to success, together
WELCOME TO BREAKING BARRIERS
Breaking Barriers in Entrepreneurship is a virtual workshop series that facilitates business growth and support within Asian, Black, Latinx, and female veteran and military spouse communities.
The eight-week program is designed to create an immediate impact for early to growth-stage businesses by providing access to business tools, resources, capital opportunities, mentorship, and a stronger peer network.
The workshop series helped me organize my business and set attainable goals. I’ve been able to apply for grants, increase sales, and connect with other like-minded individuals. The instructors helped me own an abundant mindset and apply it to my business.
