Advancing Minority-Owned Businesses

MBF Small Business Training

Since September of 2015, MBF has presented Small Business Training for minority-owned businesses in the City of Miami. Taught by experts in the field, the workshops provide business owners with essential tools and skills to grow their companies.

The 5 week, 10-session program covers such relevant topics as Establishing a Business, Developing a Business Plan & Projections, Understanding Financial Statements, Basic Accounting, Market Analytics, Marketing Plan & Branding, Digital Marketing, Policies & Procedures, Leveraging Amazon, Business Resources, and Accessing Capital.

“The training was the best gift to my business. It motivated me; it gave me the resources I needed – and those I didn’t know even existed! The atmosphere was kind, compassionate, and productive.”

Michele Fievre

CEO and Founder, Logan Masterworks

“The MBF Business Training is essential to any executive that is serious about becoming and remaining viable.”

Ed Haynes

“As a new business owner in a very competitive market, the small business training has given us the confidence to become business owners rather than employees.”
