Riding out the recovery rough, nameless among the business producers in San Diego, counts as a capitalist experience that can be prevented. Urban Entrepreneurs helps downtown locals do all they can to succeed in their own business.
Doors opened to the disadvantaged determined to build an American Dream in December 2010, at the corner of 11th Avenue and Broadway. Plain deals that cost little to start off are offered. Long enterprise plans, often messy, and filled with failures, might crush the hopes held by a minimum wage worker, or by the man who spends his life out in the open on the Broadway blocks.
A little bank finance can solve the idea entrepreneur's early business troubles.
Making headway has been a long time coming for the men and women who live in the inner city hard luck stories have long been ingrained. Main entrepreneurial opportunities, not just recovery work gains, get underway the results the non-profit people are after. The main mission is "to empower people."
But, the American experiment still "has never fully been maximized and realized for those who are considered the less fortunate in our society: America's men and women in the inner city." Extra work done by volunteers and extra money given by donators to a non-profit like Urban Entrepreneurs are needed to give everyone a fair chance.
Those who come in for free advice, or to sign up for a free class, improve their opportunities to succeed by getting the expert help the San Diego entrepreneur, teacher, and author who started Urban Entrepreneurs made his life's work. The former Mira Costa College teacher originally planned to make starting a business an entrepreneur's money's worth in major cities all across America.
During the days success in San Diego remains uncertain for many, the non-profit started up downtown connects volunteer teachers and counselors to the locals with a business idea to make sure the city does not think too little of their idea.
Deficit rugged economies might be in the past in San Diego. But, shop closings will not end any time soon. And, Urban Entrepreneurs, two years after the start up, still helps downtown locals face the odds in entrepreneurial business, and win.
The line continues next week.
