When you're ready to start your climb to the top
...we are ready to help you get there.
The Institute for Entrepreneurial Leadership (IFEL), founded in 2002, is an independent, not‐for‐profit organization that supports economic development through entrepreneurship. We are experts in creating and implementing small business programming in support of larger economic development objectives. We envision a future with inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems in which people from historically marginalized populations have equal opportunity for success. In pursuit of this vision, our mission is to eradicate the systemic barriers that prevent people of color from being able to access the knowledge, networks, and capital required for entrepreneurial success and wealth creation.
Our three programmatic areas are as follows:
Relationship Capital Connections | Learn more at Women of Color Connecting
Investor Inclusion | Learn more at The Making of Black Angels
Community-Building Small Business Initiatives | Learn more at Small Businesses Need Us
