Collaborating and Engaging

Working together to build strong businesses

As a not-for-profit organization we rely on community partners, private businesses and professionals to help us support local entrepreneurs in their business development.

Each year we work with dozens of community service organizations to introduce their clients to the possibility of self-employment and we enlist more than 70 private sector volunteers to provide expertise in seminars, mentorship groups, discussion panels, conferences and competitions.

If you work with clients considering self-employment, or are an experienced business professional who would like to assist new ventures we want to hear from you. Click on the appropriate category below to learn more.
