Minority women are the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs, yet recent studies have shown that businesses owned by women of color are less likely to be selected for funding from angel investors and other financial institutions.

We are excited to continue our work in dissolving this disparity with the PROSPECTUS Online Business Accelerator Program.

PROSPECTUS focuses on providing both the trainings and resources needed to build and scale businesses founded by multicultural women

  • Chrycka Harper

    Do I have a formal business in order to participate? I am currently in the process of starting a business, i.e writing the business plan, legalizing the name, etc.

    • Anistia Phiaria

      No you do not need to have a formal business plan to participate.

      • Chrycka Harper

        So does the course focus more on how to start a business or how to grow a business?

  • Denise Johnson

    Are scholarships available?

    • Anistia Phiaria

      Hi Denise! Currently, scholarships are not available- yet the tradeoff of paying $100.00 to receive $5,000 is a benefit. Most loans that are funded require a loan processing fee in order to receive funding. This is a great all inclusive program to invest in yourself.

      • Denise Johnson

        I don’t doubt the value, I’m on a fixed-income (disability) the tuition is more than ten-percent of my month. Thanks for your prompt response!

      • Alyssa Hogan

        The money is a loan that has to be paid back?

        • Rachel Hampton

          Hi Alyssa! The $5,000 funding is awarded as a prize and is not a loan that has to be paid back.

  • LaKisha Harris

    Do you have to pay the $5000.00 back?

    • Rachel Hampton

      Hi LaKisha! The $5,000 funding is awarded as a prize and is not a loan that has to be paid back.
