The Entrepreneur Educational Center, Inc. (EECI) announced, “Mission accomplished,” after wrapping up its final business plan development seminar in a series at Roosevelt Park in Los Angeles.

EECI organizers said the series, conducted for multi-cultural entrepreneurs in Los Angeles County’s 2nd District, achieved its goal of recruiting and enrolling those individuals that EECI plans to start their DBA or Incorporate their Non-Profit. EECI plans to assist and start up to 15 businesses in 2022.

EECI is focused on getting the Blue and Green Economy into the entrepreneur and small business community’s conversation when discussing new opportunities to explore. It helps that there are nearly 6,000 Blue businesses in the 2nd County District headed by Supervisor Holly Mitchell.   Each of these Blue businesses was invited to attend, and EECI plans to follow up for jobs and small businesses near the Port of Los Angeles.

Janine Haydel, EECI CFO noted, “The seminars were just one phase of programs the organization will be offering in anticipation of $5.2 million dollar funding that has been secured by Senator Steven Bradford by the State of California. Funds will soon be dispensed to support and encourage equity in entrepreneur and small business opportunities for women and multicultural entrepreneurs residing in low to moderate income communities in Los Angeles County.”

Inglewood resident David Hawthorn, a drone operator who is interested in making the fight against the regions’ wildfires safer and economical, offered this insight on the seminars’ value. “These presentations have accelerated my plans to participate in the new blue and green economy.
