According to research, nine of 10 small business owners say that they’re still involved in the day-to-day activities of their business as opposed to truly focusing on the company’s future.

We all know that the stakes are high for the future of the Indianapolis Public Schools – for tomorrow’s workforce, our competitive position in the knowledge economy, and creating a livable city where people and employers can thrive.  With Indianapolis among the most difficult cities to escape the cycle of poverty, improving education is the surest path towards upward mobility.    

For all these reasons, the business community must be a partner in progress with IPS.  We need your help as we continue to help the district maintain focus – and funding – in the classroom.

Business Ownership Initiative (BOI) has always provided small business owners and entrepreneurs in the Indy Region with access to free one on one small business coaching. However, these resources were only provided at locations in Marion County, making the services inconvenient for clients in the Indy metro. BOI is proud to announce that they have expanded into the Indy Region and are better able to serve entrepreneurs!
