Our Services

We want to partner with you to support your Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. Together we have decades of experience in working with low-income, minority, women and vetran run small businesses.  We’ve designed and implemented various educational and public sector programs for entrepreneurs. The following services are designed to support intermediaries but are also available to small businesses and nonprofit agencies.

We provide entrepreneurship program development for your mission agency. Paul Wright has 20 years experience in the community development finance industry. He has experience in program design, evaluation and team development. Our team also consists of professional instructional designers and project managers on our team.

Some of our projects include:

  • Kauffman Foundation
    We developed a training and development program for their Kauffman FastTrac program and piloted an online "train-the-trainers" program with peer-to-peer exchange and mentoring for program directors. With our help, Kauffman was able to move from a pilot to full program rollout in just 18 months.
  • Communities of Healing
    This project, funded by a federal Appalachian Regional Commission grant, seeks to address the opiod crisis by creating a "social impact hub" that strengthens the recovery-to-work ecosystem in southern West Virginia. We offer cohort-based training for food-based businesses and entrepreneurs seeking to invest in the social mission of recovery. We are one of five organizations that are part of this 3-year grant.

Maria Wright has worked for several start-ups and small businesses where she learned the ins and outs of building websites. She realized early on that you can build a pretty website, but it can be completely ineffective. Since then, she has become a student of brand development and marketing that gets results.

One of our contracts is with the Mountain Association, a mission lender who supports small businesses in Appalachian Kentucky. Combined with Paul’s coaching services, we have helped dozens of their loan clients clarify their target market, develop a brand, and create website traffic and sales.

Examples of her services include:

  • Websites in Wordpress and Webflow platforms that focus on solving your clients’ problems
  • Websites for rental properties with integrated reservation calendar technology
  • Personal brands for service-based entrepreneurs
  • User Experience (UX) and ADA Compliance for Websites
  • Multilingual websites

We directly support entrepreneurs through our online courses and coaching platforms. Paul Wright is an Accredited Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation and has provided hundreds of hours of professional coaching and mentoring to leaders nationwide.

Your team or members will get access to various self assessment tools and professional coaching models that will help them improve their communications, leverage their strengths and achieve strategic goals or towards professional growth.

Paul specializes in social entrepreneurship and has a series called the Social Enterprise Labs. These courses may be bundled and delivered to an audience that you support.
