Our exclusive Empowerful Facebook group allows BIPOC entrepreneurs to connect with one another, ask questions, share success and failures, and resources. Community connection is what makes a business successful.
We organize quarterly virtual events where experts in different fields will present on their topic of knowledge. As an entrepreneur, you must be a jack of all trades; mini mentorship sessions from experts in various fields will help you hone in on that necessary diverse skillset.
Each year there is a total of $10 000 CAD of funding available through the Empowerful Incubator. Twice a year we review pitches. Apply for a portion of the pot with a pitch on how it will be used to propel your small business forward. Funding will be divvied out to multiple business owners.
