Miami Dade College’s School of Business has been offering free seminars and workshops for small business owners since 2007. The first series was, known as the Minority Capacity Development Program, recruited minority owned businesses from Liberty City, Little Haiti, Overtown, Allapattah and Wynwood.  In 2010, a Spanish tract was introduced adding new areas, such as:  Little Havana, Hialeah, and Miami Beach.

Thanks to the continued support from Citi Foundation, and the growing demand for business development programs such as this one, the Small Business Education Program has been expanding over the years.  

The 2014 Small Business Education Program/Grow Miami Initiative will be much more comprehensive, consisting of eight classroom sessions, followed by a second module where mentors will provide individual assistance to those who completed the first phase.  An interactive round-table discussion with successful business owners from the local community was also introduced this year.   

The seminars/workshops will kick-off in the Fall 2014 and conclude in the Summer 2015.

Over the years, our goal has been to provide small business owners with basic knowledge and tools to manage their business. This year we are joining efforts with the Grow Miami Initiative so the emphasis is on growth and expansion, job creation, and revenue growth.    

We invite you to be part of the experience!
