FREE D.C.-AREA ENTREPRENEURSHIP READINESS ASSESSMENT LAUNCHES IN JULY
Greater Washington Urban League Precursor to Major Entrepreneurship Center Program Series
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — Today the Greater Washington Urban League (GWUL) announced that it will host a free, open-to-the-public Entrepreneurship Readiness Assessment at the GWUL Headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 7–9 pm. The event will take place in the GWUL-PEPCO Community Room and is an opportunity to facilitate a structured assessment of aspiring entrepreneurs presently building a business or strongly considering the formation of one. This process will help identify areas where the GWUL can assist individuals moving forward.
The assessment serves as a precursor to the GWUL’s comprehensive Entrepreneurship Center Program (ECP) Cohort planned for July 26, 2017 from 7–9pm. Participants in the Entrepreneurship Readiness Assessment will have a better chance of securing a spot in the highly anticipated ECP Cohort, where D.C.-area entrepreneurs are invited to attend an intensive 10-week course in small business start-up and resource management for only $125.
GWUL’s Entrepreneurship Center Program provides diverse Black, Latinx, disabled, women and other traditionally disadvantaged entrepreneurs with the necessary tools and resources for increased competitiveness and profitability while entering new markets.
