Three Things that IECE's Catapult Business Growth Network will Provide to Inland Empire's Entrepreneurs

Utilize Our Platform

Catapult Business Growth Network is a program by IECE. This is a network for entrepreneurs of the Inland Empire. The network will meet for six exciting sessions to learn new entrepreneurial skills, interact and exchange business experiences, and form lasting relationships that will result in a thriving and ongoing peer mentoring group in the Inland Empire.

We Covered this in our Weekly Wire Roundup

Would-be entrepreneurs will learn three things:

1. How is Entrepreneurship Changing the World?

Entrepreneurship is a new boom in the world. It is the shortest way to success, but at the same time, it is also the most challenging path to follow.

Entrepreneurship is not only a job. It’s a lifestyle!

Today’s world is full of opportunities and innovations. Numerous entrepreneurs are earning millions of dollars through their businesses. But only a few people can make it big in this competitive world.

The main reason behind this failure is that most people don’t have the required skills or knowledge about entrepreneurship. They try different ideas but fail because they lack experience in this field. For this purpose, IECE (Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship) is serving the community of Inland Empire to help youngsters excel in entrepreneurship.Β 

2. How do Entrepreneurs Leverage IECE as a Stepping Stone to Success?

The Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE) is dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship. They are making a difference via innovation on campus and in the community through rigorous academic programs, professional advice, or international trade shows. Since its founding, IECE has advised and taught almost 1.5 million current and prospective entrepreneurs, small business owners, and students, resulting in a $338.5 million economic effect in the Inland Empire and beyond!

Previously, Startempire Wire reported the economic impact of IECE in the year 2021. The 2021 report provided an overview of the center’s activities during the last year, including its various programs and events and its organizational reach and impact.  

In 2021, IECE facilitated $70.1 million in funding to entrepreneurs through programs and initiatives focused on increasing business success and growth through entrepreneurship education and coaching. The center also assisted 2,530 minority-owned businesses with business development services and provided free one-on-one coaching sessions to 4,645 firms.

If you read the impact report of IECE, you may get an idea of what programs the organization runs to support entrepreneurs in the region.
