EMBERS Ventures

Stay tuned for a new ventures program!

We’re excited to announce that EMBERS is re-inventing the way we offer our Ventures program. As the landscape of entrepreneurship changes so too must our offerings.

As we move forward, we will no longer be offering the Build a Business, Grow a Business, and Self-Employment Programs. Instead, throughout the next year, we’ll be exploring opportunities for new partnerships to maximize our impact in self-employment mentorship and capacity building. With the skills and expertise we’ve built over the years, we’re confident this direction will make the biggest difference for our community.

Of course, if you have questions about entrepreneurship in general, we’re still happy to direct you to the right resources. Feel free to email Johanna at
