Elevate Northland has just wrapped up hosting an 8-week program at our Center focused on helping New American entrepreneurs start their business. The New Americans Entrepreneurship Project was held in partnership with Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services-ETSS, the The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business and The Ohio State University College of Social Work
The 62 participants were mainly from Africa, Asia and South America and speak several languages. Through the project, they learned topics including how to handle problems that could arise when starting a business, how to obtain business licenses and permits, how to secure funding, as well as improving their public speaking skills.
