The Fall 2011 Greater Good Academy kicks off on September 19th and continues for eight consecutive Tuesday nights (6:00 to 9:00 p.m.) through November 7th.
This hands-on business development-training program is for low and moderate-income entrepreneurs interested in applying sustainable and triple bottom line business strategies to make their business more profitable. The Academy helps civic-minded entrepreneurs from underserved communities in Denver secure the resources they need to succeed and scale their ventures. Our focus is on building companies that are engaged in their communities, environmentally conscious and financially successful. The Academy offers the entrepreneurs the support of mentors, as well as connects them to financiers and established socially responsible businesses eager to support their development.
At the end of the 8-week Academy, each entrepreneur has a working 'triple bottom line' (people, planet, profit) business plan that defines their mission, unique product or service, financingstrategy and operations and marketing plan. A series of mentors and socially responsible companies help throughout the program.
The Academy is conducted in partnership with many of Denver's leading business development organizations, including the City of Denver's Office of Economic Development and the Mi Casa Resource Center and is supported by Colorado Lending Source, UMB Bank and Colorado Enterprise Fund.
The program takes place at the Mi Casa Resource Center, 360 Acoma Street in Denver. Scholarships are available for income-qualified entrepreneurs from Denver. Dinner will be served.
If you wish to enroll in the Academy, please contact Richard Eidlin -firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-478-0131. Please see our latest video.
