  • Identify organizations that provide resources to assist entrepreneurs and small business.

  • Collaborate with the public and provide industrial economic development groups, organizations, and grass root organizations that serves entrepreneurs and small businesses.
  • Connect entrepreneurs and small businesses with resources to stimulate expansion.
  • Identify new market opportunities in key industries.

​With job creation at center stage and unemployment at record levels, how to stimulate economic growth while creating decent jobs that pay a living wage, and preparing a workforce capable of working in new ways and in new industries, has gained more interest than ever before. Our center not only acknowledges the issue, we provide opportunities for individuals to learn and retool skills via hands on and engaging workshops, seminars, and training sessions.
