District 8 Small Business Academy Trains South Dade Entrepreneurs
Tropical Storm Erika Update
Jackson Health System is open for business and operating as usual.
For the second year in a row, my office sponsored and facilitated the District 8 Small Business Academy. This distinctive program provided vital training and resources to 23 entrepreneurs with existing small businesses in South Dade. Each year the Academy aims to give small business owners the tools and information they need to increase sales, hire more employees and thrive in South Dade. The Academy features innovative workshops that are administered by a leading development agency, Partners for Self-Employment.
The Academy included a friendly business competition, similar to the televised "Shark Tank" series, where the winners won monetary prizes to boost their businesses. The winners included: Jessica Welsh, $5,000 for Gringa Flan: Rockell Bartolli, $3,000 for iPrep4Life, and Jessica Laguere, $2,000 for The Royalty Series. The four-month program concluded with an Access to Capital lenders forum and business networking event held at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center on June 22, 2017.
