Winston-Salem, N.C. (March 5, 2013) – Truliant Federal Credit Union will host a five-week entrepreneurship workshop designed to provide small business owners and people interested in starting their own business an opportunity to learn financial and business best practices from industry leaders. Held in collaboration with the nonprofit community development organization Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods, Inc., this workshop will be held on Tuesdays, March 26 to April 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Augsburg Community Center at 502 Broad Street in Winston-Salem. Instructors will use an innovative curriculum developed by North Carolina REAL Enterprises, Inc., an organization whose mission is to develop entrepreneurial talent through action learning and to foster the creation of sustainable enterprises throughout North Carolina.
For 2013, Truliant was awarded a Financial Education Grant from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) to implement REAL Entrepreneurship. The purpose of the grant is to provide interactive, experiential entrepreneurship training that gives aspiring small-business owners and entrepreneurs a holistic education in financial and business literacy.
“Our goal is to work with entrepreneurs in low wealth and urban communities to provide money management skills that improve their financial position and strength to access more products and services,” said Marjorie Rorie, director of community services for Truliant. “Most importantly, entrepreneurship education allows Truliant to continue our mission of enhancing the lives of people in our local communities by promoting a healthy, vibrant economy in which small business and successful entrepreneurial activity plays a vital role.”
