Micro-Revolution Academy

Entrepreneurship is for everyone!

Here at Micro-Revolution Academy, we believe in the power of micro-enterprise as an avenue for social and economic empowerment. Our unique and innovative program enables those who are on the margins of society to work toward their own greatness by:

  1. discovering and reclaiming their own sparks, the life's vocation and mission that propels a human being.
  2. redefining and reimagining their lives by examining and rewriting the stories they tell about themselves.
  3. assessing their own strengths, inner resources, and weaknesses.
  4. creating a simple, straight-forward, yet viable business plan.
  5. learning how to finance their new business with $25 to $250 in start-up expenses, even if they have little to no money and have no access to credit or banking.
  6. developing unique branding message and products that express who they are and plays on their own strengths.
  7. gaining confidence, dignity, and pride in themselves.

The Academy programs include:

  • Small-group based entry-level workshops.
  • Peer-based supportive community.
  • Continuing mentorship and support.
  • Opportunities for networking and collective promotions.

Micro-Revolution Academy is ideal for:

  • Single parents who cannot afford childcare costs and full-time jobs.
  • Those who cannot thrive or function in a corporate workplace environment because of disabilities, mental health, or any other reasons.
  • Those who are often left out of the economic and job opportunities because of systemic social disadvantage such as past criminal histories, history of homelessness, ethnic background, limited formal education, gender, age, and/or sexual orientation.
  • Artists and crafters who would like to generate income from their creative talents.
  • Those who are on fixed income and are interested in ways to supplement income (SSI recipients can engage in business and not lose benefits as long as their monthly gross earning remains under a certain limit).
  • Those who are considering an exit from the corporate world.
  • You!
