ST. LOUIS – Thirty graduates of the Urban League’s Women’s Business Center Program were recognized Tuesday night in Ferguson.
They completed a 12-week program aimed at helping entrepreneurs.
Missouri Governor Mike Parson attended the ceremony to show his support for the future business leaders and offered them some advice.
“Its about making everybody around you better, and that’s the secret. And you guys in your own rights went to the Urban League and took this training course. You’re going to be able to share that with somebody else and somebody else is going to sit in your seats next time. That’s how you make a difference,” Parson said.
He also said partnerships are pivotal in growing small businesses across the state.
