Investing in the future of small businesses, while paying homage to the historic Northside.
The Northside Entrepreneurship Initiative was founded to help small businesses grow and create jobs by providing them with greater access to education, capital, and mentorship.
In order to bring this vision to life, we have partnered with the Stockton University Small Business Development Center, the Latin American Economic Development Association (LAEDA), Myriad Dynamics, and various Atlantic City entrepreneurs.
Together, we have meticulously crafted a comprehensive eight week program. Through our academy model, participants will gain practical skills across topics such as business incorporation, marketing, networking, finance, and gain the tools to develop a customized business plan for growth—for free.
We have also incorporated a Northside Panel, which is structured to give our participants the historic knowledge of a time period when Atlantic City small businesses thrived the most.
In addition to the aforementioned, we have partnered with various banks financial agencies, and other funding sources, to help position our participants to access capital upon successful completion of the program.
