Our business coaches schedule one-on-one consultations with the Entrepreneur. The initial meeting will allow the business coach to determine how exactly the Growth Center can assist each Entrepreneur and meet their specific needs. From there they will be able to help the client either determine or fine tune their business plans.
ACCESS Growth Center’s IEDProgram strives to maximize the capacity of immigrants and those in the various communities living in the surrounding areas, to start and grow businesses. While immigrant entrepreneurs have demonstrated a unique acumen for enterprise, a number of obstacles hamper their success. Through this program, entrepreneurs utilize a wealth of resources to transcend difficulties whether they be language barriers, lack of capital or credit history, cultural disorientation and discrimination.
