Twelve local business owners graduated from Rise Up Springfield’s “Streetwise MBA” program Tuesday evening.
“Streetwise MBA” gives small business owners the knowledge needed to continue to grow in Springfield.
The six month program connected the entrepreneurs with local experts, and introduced them to the tools and tactics needed to more effectively run their businesses, and set them up for long term growth.
William Lefevre, owner of Superior Tax and Accounting Service told 22News, “It also provided a mentorship, by having different experts come in and help us so that we don’t have to re-invent the wheel. We can really look forward to being a successful business, by having the proper groundwork”.
Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno said supporting small businesses and helping them grow, creates more job opportunities in the city.
