BIPOC Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (bETA) is an 8-week program designed to give BIPOC entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs in Rhode Island the knowledge, tools, and access to the capital they need to acquire and run an already existing and successful small business.
Starting a business from scratch is hard. You have to validate your idea, raise funding, attract customers, build operations, and beat the daunting odds of a 90% failure rate. Buying a business allows you to shortcut all of this and make money on day one of becoming a business owner.
