The Urban League of Cleveland, who will celebrate its 100 year anniversary next year, caught the eye of the RNC official due to its successful Entrepreneurship Center. The Entrepreneurship Center was established 12 years ago. The program provides minority small business with strategic planning, counseling, technical assistance, quality-based assessments, information about federal, state and local programs and more. This model has been highly successful and replicated by 12 different cities by the National Urban League. The pop-up store was made possible due to the collaboration and support of the following organizations: Republican National Convention (Committee on Arrangements); National Urban League (Urban Empowerment Fund); National Development Council; Morgan Stanley; Key Foundation; Burton D Morgan Foundation; the City of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, and Urban League of Greater Cleveland.
