Entrepreneur Training

In Upper Manhattan, small businesses often struggle because owners lack personal credit histories and often do not have a background in market analysis, business planning and budgeting. 

CWCID's Entrepreneur Training series helps participants develop the skills necessary to operate a small business or micro-enterprise. The 12-session program is offered on a quarterly basis, and covers various topics, including marketing, accounting, business planning, business law, employee management and information technology. 

Participants who complete the series are granted free legal counseling (in English or Spanish), thanks to the pro bono services of Chadbourne & Parke. In addition, CWCID serves as a coordinating agency for the Trickle Up Program, which provides $700 seed grants to home-based micro-enterprises and start-up businesses. CWCID also offers technical assistance to members who receive loans from Neighborhood Trust to support their business ventures.
