How We Help

COUNSELING

 The Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship turns entrepreneurs into business owners. In 29 years as a not for profit entity, the Center has graduated over 290 businesses with an 80% success rate, compared to a National rate of 44%. Currently the Center serves 54 companies, with a very diverse ownership. 74% of the companies are minority owned, with over 50% being owned by women, and 49% being African-American owned.

By focusing on an entrepreneurial culture and business foundations, the Center produces a significant and measurable impact upon the community. In 2005 alone, more than 125 million dollars in revenue and over 4 million dollars in added tax revenue were contributed to the local economy. More importantly, over 1200 jobs have been created.

We utilize the following programs and documents to assist our Associates in their knowledge and growth as business owners.
Please feel free to use them to gain more insight in what we consider the foundations of business.
