On March 24, 2022, from 2 – 3:30 pm ET, WBENC is hosting our Thriving with Capital One kickoff session. This program is made possible through the Capital One Impact Initiative, which is addressing critical community needs in financial well-being, workforce development, housing, and small business support.

This Thriving with Capital One session will focus on: Attracting New Customers.

All WBEs are encouraged to attend, especially WBEs who want more insights and guidance into cornerstone business areas critical to building and maintaining a successful business.

We have made the Thriving with Capital One program flexible to meet your needs. You may attend one session, several sessions, or every session. It’s up to you!

This program is also open to non-certified businesses. Please spread the word about this new program with others in your network you think may benefit from this program.

This resiliency initiative builds off of our success of the WeTHRIVE program to deliver meaningful education and tools to assist business owners across the United States by providing educational resources on emerging topics, opportunities for mentoring, and discussion groups for the broader small business community.

Stay tuned for more announcements about this exciting new program in 2022, as Thriving with Capital One will include an Educational Series, Coffee Table Discussions with Capital One Executives, and other leading professionals, mentoring, and tools.

About Thriving with Capital One
