Pathway WBC is coming to McGruder

North Nashville FRC to host Pathway’s cohort for entrepreneurs

Pathway Women’s Business Center is proud to announce a new partnership with McGruder Family Resource Center in North Nashville. As part of a grant from the United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, Pathway WBC is partnering with McGruder FRC to bring affordable small business education to North Nashville.

“Pathway will be the anchor of the entrepreneurship programming we are bringing to the North Nashville Community. We are at a time when people need to work for themselves, they have great ideas and passion and now they can come to McGruder and turn those dreams into reality,” says McGruder FRC Director Alisha Haddock. “The support that Pathway brings through entrepreneurship training will bring growth and revenue back to our community.”

Pathway WBC will also be hosting the third round of their Discover Cohort at McGruder. The seven-week Discover Cohort is perfect for anyone who has an idea for a business or even a hobby that could be turned into a business, but isn’t sure where to begin.

In the Discover Cohort, you’ll develop financial and business know-how, start your business plan, and conduct basic market research to test your idea with target customers. You can find more information about all the Pathway WBC Cohort levels here.

To join the Discover Cohort, please attend one of our upcoming Blue Sky workshops.
