"I'm not a businessman.
I'm a business, Man!"
Since 2015, Family Freedom Center has been empowering Black and Brown business owners in the Twin Ports through workshops, networking, and financial support.
Freedom Start-Ups (FSU) is focused on supporting the business development of entrepreneurs of color aged 18 and older. The overall goal of FSU is to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem that empowers Black and Brown business owners to build generational wealth around their culture and heritage.
We provide safe spaces for growing and learning, free course material, food, childcare, and technology. We also provide professional advice on how to protect your ideas while you’re learning how to turn your hustle into a business.
Overall, this program is not an alternative to a general education but rather removes the roadblocks that some young entrepreneurs may have when they enter into the professional arena.
