Entrepreneurship Program Overview
The Entrepreneurship Initiative is dedicated to helping young minority women/men become successful entrepreneurs. We aim to inspire, educate and provide the resources needed to launch your business, start your entrepreneurship path to success and achieve economic freedom. We create a network of like-minded strivers to create a movement of women/men rebuilding their communities.
Entrepreneurship envisions a world where minority women/men have an equal chance to be successful entrepreneurs. We offer the critical elements to break barriers - hope, trust, community, support and mentorship. Most importantly, we provide essential practicalities like space, training, connections, showcasing, business knowledge and resources. A co-working space is central to our vision so we will expand to every borough in New York City as well as other states.
Fearless Women is launching our Entrepreneurship, She Tech and Financial Literacy initiatives! Women with Voices launched a women's business center for millennial minority and under privileged women in the heart of Brooklyn that houses Fearless Women entrepreneurship courses. In effort to support 3000 female/male entrepreneurs we will sponsor 300 women/men a year to help start or expand their businesses while teaching financial literacy. The initiative runs as a 4-7 week entrepreneur training course while providing free providing co working, on site business center space, classes, workshops and community to not only build them as entrepreneurs but to also support them in other arears of their lives. We are located at 535 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn NY 11217 which is near every major train station and steps a few steps from the Barclay's Center. The neighborhood has many amenities and small businesses which will serve as a great environment for our women. Our goal is to target minority women to arm them with the support and knowledge needed to succeed. With that being said we do not turn away any woman that can benefit from this initiative.
