Event Details


Calling All Entrepreneurs!

LISC Milwaukee is partnering with MORTAR to support your small business! MORTAR is a small business training and resource development program from Cincinnati that prepares would be small business owners to design and execute a business model, matches them with mentors, and supports their connection to resources and relationships. MORTAR takes a community based approach seeking to build the community through its entrepreneurs. We are excited to explore this as part of our neighborhood revitalization strategy. In the past few years their program has become an integral part of Cincinnati's small business support ecosystem; moving neighborhood entrepreneurs from ideation to small business ownership and becoming vital contributors to the economic revitalization of their communities.  It is our hope that Mortar's best practices can help our entrepreneurs in Milwaukee. Listen Here to learn more about why one founding member of Mortar started the organization in support of minority entrepreneurs.  You can also check them out here: MORTAR- 100 Businesses YouTube.
