The Presidents’ Council Foundation’s Emerging Entrepreneurs Program is designed to assist African American small business owners, whose companies have the possibility for high-growth, to move beyond the beginning entrepreneurship phases and become vibrant, growing businesses as leaders and investors in their own success. We at The Presidents’ Council Foundation believe that to enhance the economic growth of Northeast Ohio, we need to strengthen the business success of African-American business owners and address unique challenges faced by these businesses.

This program is designed for African-American business owners who have been in business at least 2 years and are ready to take the time to position their company for economic development, growth, and profitability. Ideal candidates are as follows:

  • African-American
  • Company at least 51% African-American owned
  • Established in business at least 2 years
  • Revenues of at least $50,000
  • High-Growth Potential
