A Bilingual Training and Mentorship Opportunity

FIP Alumna Alejandra Conde poses after completing the program!

The Financial Inclusion Program (FIP), a collaborative project between USC Dornsife Office of Experiential and Applied Learning and Vermont Slauson Economic Development Corporation (VSEDC), is geared to assist micro-entrepreneurs around the greater Los Angeles area.

The eight-week virtual workshops offer free courses to women who want to start or build a business and learn concepts that range from creating a business plan to digital marketing strategies. Workshops are offered in both English and Spanish and participants receive mentorship from both VSEDC team leaders and Dornsife Economics students.
