IECE launching new Entrepreneurial Resource Center in San Bernardino
The Entrepreneurial Resource Center (ERC) will be an easily accessible hub for small business training and technical assistance services serving the City of San Bernardino.
A distinct, new resource to serve as a catalyst for the creation of new businesses and the growth of existing small businesses in the City of San Bernardino has been created and slated to open in October 2023.
The Entrepreneurial Resource Center (ERC) is the result of a partnership with the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE) at Cal State San Bernardino and the City of San Bernardinio and grew out of the city and the university’s participation in the Aspen Institute Latinos & Society Program’s City Action Lab, a unique initiative that focuses on Latino majority cities and communities to strengthen local entrepreneurial ecosystems. San Bernardino was one of six cities nationally chosen to participate in the program, which focuses on generating long-term, inclusive economic growth through business ownership.
The ERC will be an easily accessible hub for small business training and technical assistance services in downtown San Bernardino at t Studio D, 330 N. D Street (Chase Building). Studio D is a newly established co-working and business hub designed for entrepreneurs at every stage that is committed to building a dynamic and diverse entrepreneurial ecosystem in the city. The ERC will bring together a wide range of entrepreneurial support programs and organizations to provide a complete set of training, business counseling, and access to resources for small business owners and entrepreneurs in the city.
