The Launch of the WOMEN Initiative in Maryland

Are you a Woman Veteran of Color with Entrepreneurial Interests?

Then WOMEN is here for you!

LTMC has the pleasure of working with the Morgan State University Entrepreneurial Development & Assistance Center (MSU EDAC) in Baltimore, Maryland which has launched the Women Owned and Managed Enterprise Network (WOMEN) initiative to meet the growing demand of Black and Brown women veteran, and military spouses seeking contracting opportunities with government agencies and the private sector. In addition to business services, knowledge as well as access to resources to develop and retain competitive enterprises are offered to women business owners and managers. Thanks to funding from the Truist Foundation, the leaders of this initiative as well as our partners have the means to directly support the businesses of the women who have served our country, and we strive to function as powerful liaisons of knowledge, network and resources between their businesses and their inevitable success.

With podcasts, webinars, entrepreneurial boot camp trainings and many other resources, the WOMEN initiative specifically aims to ensure the ongoing growth and success of both budding and established Black and Brown women business owners. In addition to business services, the knowledge and access to resources (i.e. access to capital, networking opportunities and more) to develop and retain competitive enterprises are offered through the aforementioned resources as well as our entrepreneurial academy, where participants receive ongoing support to leverage the knowledge and expertise of EDAC’s resources to create a yearlong action plan for their business. 

You and countless others have given wholly of yourselves in service to your families, your friends and our nation. 
Let us at the WOMEN Initiative now give back to you. We look forward to engaging with you and thank you for your service.
