Rebuilding the American middle class in urban communities by helping them achieve financial self-sufficiency through entrepreneurship strategies.
What is main?
Middle America Impact Network is a non profit organization with the mission of rebuilding the American middle class in urban communities by helping them achieve financial self sufficiency through entrepreneurship strategies. Entrepreneurship strategies teach individuals the core characteristics of an entrepreneur including resourcefulness, confidence, and leadership.
Our goal is to help urban and historically underserved communities develop their skills, knowledge, and network to achieve entrepreneurial traits. Our primary activities include educational workshops, information sessions, and events that provide networking opportunities. We also work with partners to bring further benefits to our beneficiaries whether it's access to certificate programs and scholarships or additional learning opportunities.
