Our Program

People with disabilities are innately entrepreneurially minded. From the moment disabled people wake up, they have to figure out how to get dressed, how to drive, how to communicate, how to live in a world that is not build to fit their needs. The mindset of disabled people is innately: collaborative and communicative, oriented towards problem solving, good at working with limited resources and used to overcoming daily challenges.

Our program turns the innate entrepreneurship mindset of people with disabilities  into a workforce development strategy. By working on their own startup, disabled entrepreneurs  learn different aspects of the workforce. They also gain first hand experience in building managing and growing a company.

Supportive Network

We recognize that Disabled Entrepreneurs face unique challenges when working on a startup. We actively work to establish partnerships with organizations that can provide other services outside of business development and entrepreneurship support.
