VPC is thrilled to announce that our President, Deepa Srinivasan, graduated from the 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) program earlier this week. The 16-week program is designed to provide small business owners the information, tools, and skills necessary to take their businesses to the next level.
Between classroom instruction, clinics, mentoring services, and a practical planning project, 10KSB scholars are equipped with the skillsets and confidence to better position their businesses in a competitive market. "10KSB was a phenomenal experience. It gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation of small businesses that operate quite differently from ours. Together, we truly are the economic engine of this country" said Deepa Srinivasan. The graduation ceremony was held Monday, August 13th, 2018, in Baltimore, Maryland. Distinguished speakers included Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen.
