ECP's New Business Training Program Adds Day Classes

Aug 4, 2016

On Wednesday, July 20th The Greater Washington Urban League Entrepreneurship Center introduced a new 10-week summer intensive training program, which was welcomed by the DC small business community with enthusiasm, filling all of the program’s available spaces. Due to the overwhelming acceptance of this new concept the league expanded to add a third class in an effort to provide the program to more eager entrepreneurs. The new 10-week summer intensive training program operates on two tracks. Both Wednesday sessions will be tailored for those entrepreneurs in the starting stages and Thursday sessions will be for those entrepreneurs with existing businesses looking to expand and stay sharp. The Entrepreneurship Center motto of “Start. Grow. Sustain.” will be the common theme for both tracks of study. The dynamic instructors and course topics have been selected to invoke critical thinking skills and enhance common business practices.

The League has been providing free quality guidance, workshops and courses to entrepreneurs since 2012. The Summer Intensive Training program is a continuation of our commitment to empowering our communities through economic strength and know how.

Some of the the program topics covered during the program include “Developing the Entrepreneurial Mindset” discussion led by internationally-acclaimed TED Talk instructor, Marcus Johnson, to “Capturing Capital” and “Credit Building for Entrepreneurs” led by Vicki Davis of Davis & Davis Advisors. These are just the tip of the iceberg for the new direction these track sessions are headed.

The Day classes begin Wednesday, August 3rd and are also FREE!!! Participants are asked to reserve their seats by registering TODAY as space is limited!!!
