Women are Rising. We're Here to Help:

We are stewards in the field of mobile apps for business planning, designed specifically for women, minorities and underserved entrepreneurs who lack business education or experience.

Centro Community Partners is a Bay Area non-profit organization based in Oakland, California partially funded by Silicon Valley partners Google.org and eBay Inc Foundation who are supporting the development of the Business Planning App. We do this with a single goal in mind: to provide small business women entrepreneurs in the bay with affordable, culturally appropriate and high-impact enterprise-building tools they can use on their phones and tablets.

Now let's work on your business.

We're in it together.
