OWATONNA, Minn., October 6-7, 2016 – Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation’s Prosperity Initiative program offered its second Executive Training for minority business owners. This training provides participants the opportunity to receive hands-on business education, network with other business owners, assess their current business situation and set goals for the future.

Following the training, each participant is paired with a coach to help them work towards their business goals over a 6-month period. Coaches will create action plans with participants to help identify what must be done to reach their goals. After a plan is created, coaches will provide participants with one-on-one technical assistance with business planning, marketing, financial projections and budgeting, among other things. In addition, the Prosperity Initiative program will help participants access other local resources, services and business specialists. It is SMIF’s hope that pairing participants with coaches will make a transformation difference in their businesses’ success.
