Aspiring entrepreneurs are invited to

apply to the 2023 Business Planning Cohort.

This July, we will launch our third NICHE business planning cohort that is designed to connect aspiring entrepreneurs and startups with coaching, mentoring, and other resources that develop a comprehensive business plan and company brand.


Full and partial scholarships are available for those who qualify.

This program is both rigorous and fast-paced. We anticipate entrepreneurs dedicating a minimum of 30 hours per month to successfully complete the program. Classes are held online and coaching/mentoring sessions are in person.


Space is limited. To be considered for scholarships, applicants must:

  • Be a minority-owned small business owner or aspiring entrepreneur. 

  • Priority will be given to residents who reside in zip codes 46260, 46268, 46278, 46228, 46222, 46208, or 46254.

  • Commit to attending 75% of all sessions including monthly group sessions and one-on-one meetings with a business coach and mentor. 

  • Commit to completing 100% of assignments on time. 

  • Gross less than $500k annually, if already operating.

This is a competitive application process. Space is limited.

Applications are due by May 31, 2023.
