Fall Idea Incubator 10-Week Class Begins

October 2, 2019

Get your social enterprise in tip-top shape! If accepted into the Idea Incubator, spend 10 weeks with like-minded entrepreneurs in a collaborative environment. You will leave with an externally-critiqued business plan, an outline for community impact, and an understanding of what your next steps should be. You will also be encouraged to launch a crowdfunding campaign to test how your idea resonates with the community, and to secure some capital for your start-up costs.


Planning for Business, Planning for Impact

The Women’s Business Center at ASSETS is proud to offer the Business Start-up Idea Incubator (formerly know as the Learning Circle) several times a year. Got a great business idea? Or in the start-up phase and looking to refine your business plan and interact with like-minded entrepreneurs? Do you want to use your business to positively impact your community? If so, our Business Start-up Idea Incubator may be right for you. This training program is set up to meet your needs as you plan to successfully launch your business.

While extra consideration is given to specific challenges and issues for women entrepreneurs, our programs serve all – women, men, and racial and ethnic minorities.
