We are so pleased to share this press release with everyone! Bank of America has expanded their funding of the Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Cornell. This additional funding will enable us to add 30,000 seats – bringing the total enrollment of small business owners to 50,000. We will also be translating the program into Spanish and hiring Spanish-speaking facilitators to provide more access to Latinx entrepreneurs.
As part of the program expansion, Bank of America will partner with several nonprofits, including the National Urban League, U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders and Prospera, to create specific enrollment opportunities for their members. The Institute expects to begin enrolling these students in January 2021.
