It is the dream of many to own a business. Many
businesses start and fail during the first year of
operation. Lack of experience, knowledge and
under-capitalization generally are the causes
surrounding most of these failures.
Our goal is to purchase one of the abandoned schools in
Detroit and convert it to "The Opportunity Institute" a
learning facility for young entrepreneurs and a job
training facility to teach basic skills for job readiness.

starting their own businesses will benefit from the
lessons learned through this business training program;
they will increase significantly their opportunities for
success and, at the same time, reduce the risk of starting
Learning valuable business lessons before starting a new venture
will point out clearly to an individual not only the ordinary hazards to
avoid, but also the value of the information that comes from the
mistakes made by most new business owners.
In addition to training, our program will offer participants immediate
placement if needed in the field of their profession by networking
with other business's and supporting other entrepreneurs who have
completed the program.
The basic skills training will provide students with the skills needed
to advance in a diverse society by teaching hands on approaches to
common workplace activities. We believe entrepreneurs should be
both mentally and physically fit.
Our business training program offers potential entrepreneurs the
opportunity to be able to invest the appropriate amount of time
researching what is necessary to build a business and further boost
their business insight; their chances of success increase
considerably as a result and the cost of starting and running their
business decreases. The program emphasize learning from others’
successes and failures; business owners will learn to recognize
those mistakes and instead choose to follow proven steps that have
provided successful outcomes.
