Inclusive Ventures Program Graduation

  • This event has passed.

Inclusive Ventures Program (IVP) aims to assist small, minority, women and veteran entrepreneurs in Anne Arundel County with education, mentorship and access to capital. The goal is to help these businesses maximize opportunity, create jobs and grow our local and state economy.

Business owners must apply to the program. Preferred candidates are entrepreneurs who have a track record; the company should be in business for at least two years and have revenue and employees.

Upon acceptance, entrepreneurs will participate in the program’s signature component, the Virtual Entrepreneurship Cohort and Seed Fund. This online experience is a three-hour class once a week for six weeks. During the seventh meeting, each participant will receive a certificate of completion and a $5,000 grant to be used for working capital. Participating businesses also receive exclusive, complimentary consultations with legal, human resources and accounting experts and may apply for additional funds through AAEDC’s VOLT loan fund and Workforce Training Reimbursement program.

This is a private event. Learn more about the program here:
