Empower- Black owned entrepreneurship training

EMPOWER About us:

We aim to lift our entrepreneurial community through education, social capital growth, and mentorship! We focus developing and supporting small business owners and entrepreneurs in the Cedar Rapids and surrounding areas. 

We offer a free, intense 12-week education program designed to provide you with the basics you need to know to launch or grow your business. Classes run as a cohort with up to 25 entrepreneurs. This structure allows for community support and feedback while developing your business and providing vital connections to other business professionals.

Empower was named the winner of PR Daily’s “Corporate-Community or Nonprofit Partnership” category in the 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility Awards. Based on Empower’s success, GoDaddy plans on using the framework, curriculum, and core program components to launch an additional 26 programs across the country.
