Entrepreneurship Advantage November Virtual Meetup: Let’s celebrate a year of hard work!


Entrepreneurship Advantage is a Los Angeles-based collaboration that is passionate about helping entrepreneurs thrive.

We had our last Entrepreneurship Advantage Virtual Meetup of the year! We learned about The South Los Angeles CDFI Consortium, networked with colleagues, and celebrated a year of hard work!

The South Los Angeles CDFI Consortium is a group of local providers, offering essential business, educational, and financial services that make a tangible difference for small business owners and residents of LA County and other Southern California regions. Their mission is to develop and implement creative, community-based strategies to enhance economic opportunity, education, affordable housing, financial literacy, consumer and business banking and ensure a dynamic framework for quality growth and development. Whether you’re starting a business or need help growing your business, they are here to help.

Thank you to our speakers:

  • Madison Richards, Assistant Program Officer at LISC LA and Shaun Mehr from Mehr Media Group who demoed the website.

We also had a Holiday Small Business Spotlight! at the end of our meeting. Thank you to Claudia Shah, Lead Business Advisor at LA SBDC and Kaine Nicholas, Executive Director at The Black Cooperative Investment Fund for sharing some of your favorite small businesses.
