Entrepreneurship Education, Enterprise Development & Financial Literacy

We train underserved, low-income and minority entrepreneurs to help them start, develop and grow their businesses.

Basic Entrepreneurship Program

Centro's Basic Entrepreneurship Program was designed for individuals primarily on the idea stage of their business and who have not been exposed yet to any business education. The program is delivered through Centro's Global Network of Affiliates.

Entrepreneur readiness program

Centro's advanced entrepreneurship program was purposefully created for those who have completed a basic entrepreneurship program or similar training, have a portfolio of products or services, and want help developing a business model they can act upon. They do this mentored by business students who are enrolled in Centro's MBA Advisor Program.

MBA Advisor Program

Centro trains graduate business students to become business advisors and professional coaches. During the program, volunteer MBA Advisors work one-on-one with an entrepreneur in our Entrepreneur Readiness Program to advise and coach them through the process of developing and executing on their business plan. MBA Advisors are also supported by a body of experienced professionals who give back to the community serving as their mentors.

In 2014 we launched in English the first mobile app that writes a basic business plan for you. Today, our app also helps entrepreneurs assess their creditworthiness and determine which micro lenders best suit their needs. It has also been translated to Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.
