a program of Southwest Solutions
The ProsperUS Detroit Entrepreneur Training program utilizes a place-based focus to economic development. In collaboration with Community Partners in specific areas in the city seen as having barriers to economic development and stability, we offer a comprehensive, 20-week entrepreneur training program that helps participants realize their potential and develop a business plan. Through this program, we look to our entrepreneurs to be examples, leaders, and potentially employers, in these communities as business owners.
Our Entrepreneur Training participants are Detroit residents who plan to, or currently, have a business in our target geographies in the city. We accommodate all ages and stages of entrepreneurs, and if we find that our program will not serve you best, we are able to make recommendations for other supports in the community. Working directly with Community Partners, we strive to help participants find a network that works with them to achieve their dreams.
Through a scholarship, Detroit residents are able to take the class for $75 or $150 depending on their household income – our classes are valued at nearly $800. We are passionate about serving neighbors and developing leaders in the community.
