For more than 53 years, IBE has been helping businesses with business management training, procurement opportunities, and networking to enhance their capacity and growth. In partnership with KeyBank, and others, IBE will offer a robust 12-week business management program, free of charge. The second cohort will take place in April. The training sessions will focus on practical business skills that can immediately be applied by small Black business owners.
A $5,000 award will be provided to the top business owner/business in each cohort that excels in the program. Businesses will also be eligible for growth grants after completing the program. In partnership with the Central Indiana Small Business Development Center, each participant will receive technical support and business advice throughout the program.
