CIE offers accessible and inclusive first step business training and support in underserved communities throughout Washington State to help people launch and build businesses and become leaders in building resilient, sustainable, and equitably shared community wealth. CIE partners and participants are re-defining entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship does more than provide a means to achieve individual financial self-sufficiency and economic development. Entrepreneurship is an empowerment mindset that everyone has the capacity to develop and that can transform anyone into a leader in building community wealth.
