We believe in the power, drive, and daring of local entrepreneurs to transform their lives and revitalize their neighborhoods.
Step One: TRAINING
We offer culturally appropriate, comprehensive training for new or growing entrepreneurs. Our 12-week training program consists of classes, workshops, and one-on-one sessions taught by an experienced small business instructor in topics including operations, marketing, financials, and more. Course content and pace are customized to entrepreneurs' needs.
Step Two: LENDING
Set Up Shop graduates will receive access to lending resources and potential access to financing through our microloan program. We also provide access to appropriately sized capital for business owners looking to grow.
