Our organization, Business Credit Literacy Initiative (BCLI), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is a member of the Money Smart for Small Business Alliance developed and managed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
As such, BCLI is exclusively responsible for developing, managing, and implementing the Small Business Management & Entrepreneurship Certificate providing the skills necessary to establish and operate a small business or entrepreneurial enterprise.
Participants can complete the five modules in-person or on-line and earn Certification. The modules include:
There is a one-time, $249.99 cost to enroll in the Certification Program. However, upon completion of the curriculum and implementation of a Capital Acquisition Plan, the entire $249.99 is refunded through a grant BCLI has received.
All students completing the curriculum, earning Certification, and implementing the free, grant-funded Capital Acquisition Plan is guaranteed at least $100,000 to start or grow a business.
