About the Program

The program is designed to create citywide business leaders who have the business acumen to deliver goods and services to the East Winston-Salem community and beyond.

The world has never been more in need of students, business and community leaders who are trying to make a difference than it is today...and this is the very definition of entrepreneurs. The goal of an entrepreneur is to sell products and services, but this is just one piece of the entire puzzle. To become successful at it, they have to identify the real needs and problems of people and solve them. The program is fully funded by the Center of Economic Mobility to spur community economic independence and innovation.

In addition to encouraging people, entrepreneurship education requires learners to be innovative, creative and collaborative with others. The confidence that the student and community small business leaders will develop will impact the economic sustainability of their neighborhoods. The learners will have the skill sets to grow their communities and increase the available pool of skilled professionals.
