Mission & Values

Many Americans lack full access to entrepreneurship, so we're changing that. Our success is defined as "open for business" for all Americans who dream of holding the key.

Our Mission


Our mission is to open the door of entrepreneurship for all Americans by sharing with them the tools and training necessary to start, run, and grow successful businesses.

We Value


We value the opportunity that entrepreneurship provides to transform lives.
