Last week, eight Bay Area small business owners began Centro's Entrepreneur Readiness Program. For 14 weeks, they will work hand-in-hand with Centro's entrepreneurship trainers and their MBA advisors. Together, they will develop in-depth studies of the businesses, re-write business plans, create sustainable business models, prioritize marketing campaigns, and more.
We chose these incredibly passionate group of individuals who we are confident have everything it takes to move forward with the dream job they created for themselves, and succeed. We are also excited to share that 75% of them are women in a second or third career at 40+ years old!
