WITH GO-3D: SELF-EMPLOYMENT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

GO-3D Self-Employment 

Take your business to the next level!

 

Our GO-3D Self-Employment service prepares aspiring entrepreneurs with disabilities to launch their own businesses!

 

We look for members of the disability community who have a business idea they want to get off the ground or people with disabilities who already own an existing business and want some extra guidance.

GROWTH

The GO-3D program will offer four phases of growth and development training and coaching to kickstart your business.

OPPORTUNITY

You will have access to resources, funding, mentorship, and most importantly, one on one coaching sessions.

DETERMINATION

You will have our ongoing support so you can perservere and determine your own future.

DRIVE

You control your destiny. We will inspire and motivate you to reach your business goals.

DISABILITY

We believe self-employment should be a first choice for persons with disability. Not a last resort.
