The words MADE IN THE USA mean something special to entrepreneurs & small business owners who have built their enterprises with blood, sweat and tears.
Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
The MADE IN THE USA PROJECT™ will ignite an Entrepreneurial Revolution across America in 3 phases:
Phase 1: Publish the Success Stories of 12 local Leaders in a Book for each USA County and Parish
Phase 2: Promote local Economic Development Resources, Organizations and Mentors
Phase 3: Launch a Private Business Incubator with a 12 month kickoff plan to expand local growth
The MADE IN THE USA Project™ starts in each county and parish by publishing a book featuring the stories of 12 “entrepreneurial revolutionaries” to inspire their fellow, local citizens. While they each have different businesses, backgrounds and experience, these leaders prove hard work and perseverance produce success.
These local entrepreneurs are living in plain sight and offer real examples of what is possible. Each person has faced and overcome challenges in order to live the American Dream in the way they choose.
The second phase of The MADE IN THE USA Project™ promotes often under- utilized, community economic development resources available to support entrepreneurs at every growth stage. Not only can these organizations, programs and mentors be crucial for start-ups, but they can be a lifesaver for businesses that have been open for years.
Most counties offer small business support through chambers of commerce, community and state colleges, volunteer business plan mentoring groups and angel investors, but few business owners take advantage of these opportunities.
According to Steve Olds, Patriot Mission™ Founder and The MADE IN THE USA Project™ sponsor, “In our research, many small business owners told us they do not have time to look for community resources and most believed their time is better spent trying to solve their own problems. However, given the current economic challenges, many entrepreneurs now say they are willing to engage in creative solutions to solve problems in real time.”
In the third phase, The MADE IN THE USA Project™ will launch a Private Business Incubator in each community using proprietary technology built to grow local economies and promote innovation through grassroots capitalism. The incubator effectively matches existing organizations, resources, and programs with people who are best suited to use them.
For example, some Private Business Incubator programs will inspire creative business development through social marketing, promotion, mentorship, apprenticeship, crowd funding and a private job bank, just to name a few. The Private Business Incubators also incorporate angel investor programs to connect private capital with a constantly growing pool of local opportunities.
The Private Business Incubator’s 12 month local action plan will implement win-win programs to serve the small business community and teach hands-on entrepreneurship to apprentices. For example, many young people bring technological knowledge which can immediately translate into income, profit and equity if a small business owner effectively knows how to task an apprentice. Through its proprietary technology, the incubator will offer peer-to-peer mentoring and leadership development.
Mr. Olds said, “The words MADE IN THE USA mean something special to entrepreneurs and small business owners who have built their enterprises with blood, sweat and tears. Americans still get excited about being part of a successful team and private business incubators are a great place to fan the flames of entrepreneurship.”
