THE PROJECT START-UP INITIATIVE

Your one stop shop for start-up business resources and networking

Welcome to The Project Start-Up Initiative. Our two-fold mission is to provide step-by-step guidance to new small businesses, with the intent of ensuring that they establish legal business entities. We will also offer training and provide methods to eliminate co-mingling of personal and business finances. A support group atmosphere will surround our participants with the resources they need for a successful start on their chosen business venture.

The Project Start-Up Initiative will also provide underprivileged youth with basic financial literacy workshops. After attending the basic financial literacy workshops, these youths will be able to participate in the youth segment of small business resource workshops, which will provide them the opportunity to use their unique skills and/or talents to become business owners.

Project Start-Up is not your ordinary networking event. Our focus is on building a resourceful support group for youth, start-up and small businesses in the DMV area. It is our vision to engage youth in business ownership and help start-up and small businesses by providing a networking environment that educates business owners on how to sustain their business.
