Solicitud para el Programa de Entrenamiento Empresarial

Fall 2020 applications are open until August 2nd at 11:59 PM.

This course offers participants an overview of fundamental business principals as well as dedicated one-on-one support. By graduation participants should understand their business model, market, and finances. We expect and support participants as they legally register their business, create budgets and systems of bookkeeping, and write a business plan.

The program consists of:

  • 6 different training sites across the city of Detroit (all classes will be held virtually)
  • 12 participants in each virtual class
  • 12 two-hour virtual sessions (once per week, usually from 6 to 8 pm)
  • 10 one-hour one-on-one consultations (scheduled separately with trainer)
  • 15 week duration from first class to graduation

Applicants will be assigned to sites based on geography. We only accept applicants who live in Detroit, Hamtramck, or Highland Park. Although we prioritize operational businesses, we may also accept experienced and focused applicants.

Applications will be reviewed in the second half of March and the strongest candidates will be contacted to arrange an interview. Interviews will take place in late March and early April and classes will start in late April.

The total cost of the program is $75. It is free to apply.
