StraightLine Entrepreneur Initiative

Reach pro-level status with your online marketing (at no cost)

The Women's Business Center of Northern Ohio is partnering with Access Tech to provide Cleveland entrepreneurs, both men and women, with the equipment and technology-focused training to grow their business through the StraightLine Entrepreneur Initiative (SEI).

The five trainings being offered through the virtual program are a nine-week commitment for 15-20 entrepreneurs looking to start or expand their small business. Possessing the necessary technology and software is not required to participate in the program.

 

Upon completion of the program, participants will be entered into a raffle to win $500.
