ATLANTA, GA – Supporting current and aspiring African American entrepreneurs for the past year, The Black Burdell, Inc. announces its winner for the 2016 inaugural “Cultivating Entrepreneurs Scholarship.” The recipient of this scholarship has won a $1,000 scholarship. This novel scholarship was designed specifically to help young entrepreneurs afford the rising cost of education and help them form, grow, and develop their business at the same time.
Unlike most scholarships, the Cultivating Entrepreneurs Scholarship does exactly as it's named. It is intended to help all applicants to cultivate and enhance their businesses, not just the scholarship recipient. Applicants must submit a business plan as well as a business pitch in order to be eligible.
The Black Burdell, Inc. held workshops in order to help not only applicants, but entrepreneurs from all over Atlanta, build their business plan and perfect their pitches.
The Black Burdell, Inc. is proud to announce Michole Washington as the recipient of the inaugural 2016 scholarship.
Michole Washington recently founded Afrithmetic, a non-traditional tutoring service whose mission is to develop and enhance students’ confidence with all levels of mathematics through 1-on-1, and in-home interactive sessions that simultaneously promote positive personal development. Michole has big plans including a Masters of Mathematics, an innovative business, and a bright future ahead of her.
