Watch us grow!

We are planning for historic growth in 2023.  We are thrilled to be included as part of the omnibus spending bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden in December. We'll receive funding through a Congressionally Directed Community Project introduced and supported by Pennsylvania's US Senator Bob Casey.  Adding that to the funds we are receiving from the Henry L. Hillman Foundation and it totals over $1.5 million which will give us the opportunity to serve up to 300 new members of our groups in the coming year.

We've been getting ready for this expansion by building our operational infrastructure, hiring new staff, making technology improvements, and expanding our offerings on the topics most requested by our current members. Now, we're more ready than ever to make an impact on a larger scale.

These funders agree with our basic premise: small businesses require support beyond the start-up stage. So many owners get stuck at a low revenue level to support their communities and sustain their families, and we exist to change that!  Our data shows that, on average, businesses participating in an Entrepreneurs Forever peer group grow their revenue by 31.7% in the program's first year and by 63% as they finish their third. At the same time, their owner’s compensation is nearly doubling!

We can't wait to start this exciting new phase of our work!
