The Everyday Entrepreneur program just launched a special cohort specifically for Congolese refugees. Participants each have a business idea and work throughout the 12-week program to refine their ideas, talk to customers, and launch their business.
“They were SO excited to begin learning and thinking about starting their own business and learning business skills!” said Beth Colosimo, Executive Director of The Mill. “I am eternally grateful to Salt Lake County for assisting with financial support for this class in order that we can enroll them tuition-free and hopefully offer some start-up capital for those who have businesses ready to launch.”
“I hope this will be the first of many refugee cohorts we launch in 2022. I look forward to your partnership and financial support as we continue supporting underserved and minority communities in their efforts to create economic opportunity for themselves, their families, and their communities.”
