New Jersey Business Today Highlights Benefits Of IFEL's SBNU Initiative


The NJBIA or the New Jersey Business Today wrote an article highlighting The Institute of Entrepreneurial Leadership (IFEL) Small Businesses Need Us Initiative launched earlier this year.


The program matches business professionals and experts with small business owners who are struggling to keep their businesses alive. The goal is to provide the life support that the businesses need to survive, and ultimately, to thrive despite the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.


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.
