SQUARE1, a not-for-profit, is an entrepreneur education and business igniter providing resources to a broad range of individuals interested in turning ideas and research into thriving businesses. The mission is to work collaboratively to promote inclusion in the entrepreneur ecosystem. This revolves around educational opportunities and the optimization of resources to better support individuals seeking to improve their personal situations or contribute to the growth of our community through new business creation and growth. Our programs break through barriers. The VELOCITY program focused on continuing the momentum formed by minority businesses. Introducing them to new sales opportunities and connections to help them grow that Network. With IGNITION we help those that don't quite fit the mold for an accelerator or a venture back of a company. Maybe they'll get to that point eventually, but have the potential to be a significant job and wealth creator for the community and for the entrepreneur. With SQUARE1ON1 we join the team becoming a key contributor to the key operations of a startup. Through our High School Entrepreneur program we see students getting a lot of education and a lot of great areas and making fantastic grades. But a lot of the skills are missing as many of these students are taught to a test. We help them look at life from an entrepreneurial perspective and hopefully form a business. We teach them opportunity recognition presentation skills business planning; along the way building their confidence and show them a path in their career that they could take weather it's soon or later. We believe everybody deserves an opportunity no matter what doors have already been opened for them or what groups they run with no matter ethnicity, gender, age, or religion. That's our passion and the drive behind SQUARE1.
