Starting or growing a business is something that many people struggle with and this entrepreneurial workshop helps individuals overcome various obstacles as well as guide them to a successful path in starting or growing an existing business.

Since the 1st workshop that graduated 12 African Americans in Harlem, WIBO has graduated more than 18,000 entrepreneurs where 75% of WIBO grad’s businesses were up and running within a year of taking the program, and 42% of businesses saw an increase in revenue after taking the WIBO program.  Some WIBO graduates are running their businesses for more than 25 years, a testament to how valuable the WIBO workshop is for its participants. 

The New York workshops are taught in:
  • Harlem (where WIBO began)

...other actionable and detailed steps that are excellent for a new or startup business. 

This semester new WIBO participants will take part in a new groundbreaking online course created as part of WIBO’s new Entrepreneur Mindset Program (EMP). WIBO’s EMP was developed to assist new entrepreneurs with developing the personal development skills and thinking needed to be successful in business.

The online course titled Training for Entrepreneur Success will lay the foundation for WIBO participants to grow successful companies by helping them enhance their strengths, identify and work on the habits that can negatively prevent them from being successful.
