To help strengthen your access to financial capital, the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. (USBC) and University of Phoenix have partnered to create a unique educational opportunity. It combines the best of both worlds: convenient online learning provided by University of Phoenix  coupled with in-person micro-workshops provided by local USBC chapter industry experts.

Gain financial knowledge

This educational opportunity will teach you concepts and skills in relevant areas including personal cash flow, market analyses and financial performance. After completing the courses and micro-workshops, you'll have a feasibility plan—constructed by you—that you can submit to either a traditional bank or microloan partner.

In the University of Phoenix courses you'll use LivePlan®, the software that provides you with a 100% customizable business plan outline and professional support.  With LivePlan, you’ll develop a business model, strategy, financial forecasts, competition benchmarks and performance tracking for your business.

Access to local USBC experts

After each University of Phoenix course you complete, you’ll have the chance to schedule a micro-workshop with a local chamber subject matter expert. In these micro-workshops, you can take what you’ve learned and ask USBC’s real-world experts about the best ways to implement your learnings.

In addition to acquiring a unique local perspective on how to improve your access to capital, you’ll also have valuable opportunities for networking and community building with local USBC members.
