Launcher Entrepreneurship Program

Launcher Entrepreneurship Training: Ever wanted to start your own business? Now you can! In late 2016, West End created a program to educate aspiring entrepreneurs on the fundamentals of starting their own businesses and helping existing businesses expand. The program is based on four primary components: (1) business training, including classroom instruction and one-on-one mentoring focused on the basic elements of starting a business; (2) business support, such as topic-specific workshops taught by local experts; (3) loans/access to credit, provided by a local Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI); (4) business incubators – shared office and workspace to reduce costs and facilitate collaboration.
