We grow and support Black solopreneurs and  microbusinesses by delivering targeted technical assistance and shared professional services that empower business owners to grow their operations and scale their businesses. Dedicated to serving the whole business, we not only focus on the health of the business, but also the health of the business owner by partnering with licensed wellness coaches and mental health practitioners to serve as mentors to small businesses. Our core belief is that by serving the whole business, the entire community prospers  economically and holistically.

Program Overview

We offer multiple training programs for Black solopreneurs and microbusinesses who want to take their business to the next level. Our most popular course is ELEVATE, a 12-week incubator that is tailored to serve the most urgent needs identified by small businesses.

The ELEVATE program provides small businesses, who we refer to as “Villagers,” the resources, tools, professional services, and access to experts within the Village Market Atlanta ecosystem to help them scale and grow their business from a single employee model to a thriving business with multiple employees.
