The Progress Center for Black Women is launching an incubator for Black entrepreneurs Sunday.

The incubator, called F.O.C.U.S. (Fundamentals, Opportunities, Consistency, Understanding, Success), aims to help Black entrepreneurs learn about the key aspects of running a business and collaborate with a like-minded community, according to a release.

The Progress Center for Black Women’s program will be 12-week cohorts, along with offering stand-alone trainings in topics such as marketing, professional development and wellness of the business and its owners. F.O.C.U.S. also provides “a connection to the local thriving ecosystem,” individual mentorship and an opportunity “to participate in small business showcases.”

“This program is the culmination of the many relationships we’ve built with local entrepreneurs going back to the Heymiss Progress Black Business Expos and the work we’ve done to connect them to resources they’ve often felt locked out of,” CEO Sabrina Madison says.

The launch will be Sunday from 4-6 p.m at its collaborative space on Capitol Square. At the launch, members of the Progress Center will have the chance to participate in a pitch for three cash prizes. Register for the event here.
