Program Goals

The goal of EEVF Phase II is to help cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset, provide scalable resources, strategies and tools, and build a sense of community in colleges, who are dedicated to empowering future entrepreneurs with the financial management skills and tools required for long-term business success. 

Our objectives with participating community colleges are to:

  1. Give students access to grants/loans for business seed funding not available elsewhere and help them obtain skills required to be a successful business owner.

  2. Create a collaborative learning environment and system of support for a cohort of aspiring entrepreneurs within the community college network.

  3. Build scalable, profitable and highly visible businesses that engage a diverse student community through existing curriculum resulting in an expanded local ecosystem and an increase in available employment.
