Leveling the field
Inspiring equitable business ownership

Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our economy—and it plays an essential role in shaping and improving our daily lives by allowing those with a dream to innovate, improve, and lead in ways never before possible.

Yet, access to business ownership is not equitable, and often includes major barriers for female and diverse entrepreneurs.

The Entrepreneur Training team offers inclusive access to the tools and resources needed in the start-up and growth phases of your business. We empower business owners to elevate their brand and build a more sustainable business model while providing a collaborative environment in which to network with like-minded individuals.

The Women’s Business Center at ASSETS houses all of Entrepreneur Training’s programs. It exists to support small business owners who are starting or expanding their businesses. While extra consideration is given to the specific challenges and issues for women entrepreneurs, the programs serve all—women, men, and racial and ethnic minorities.
