Revolución Educativa (RevEd) and the Latinx Education Collaborative (LEC) will host free, entrepreneurship classes for Spanish-speaking adults Every third Thursday of the month from 5:30 to 7 p.m., starting Aug. 20 until November at 2202 Lexington Ave.

These four, adult-series courses will be provided solely in Spanish and allow participants to learn from Kansas City resources, such as the City of Kansas City’s BizCare office — a city program to help promote economic growth within the city. Each session will serve up to 30 individuals — offering childcare services for children ages 3 to 11.

Each class will provide skills including how to build a firm, financial foundation and tips to start, grow and pivot your business. Those interested can sign up for individual course sessions or its entire series.

Opportunities like entrepreneurship classes can be used as stepping stones to build up future generations, said Iván Ramirez — RevEd director of digital experiences.

 “Their success stories can inspire other aspiring entrepreneurs within the community, demonstrating that starting a business is possible and encouraging others to pursue their dreams,” Ramirez said. “Their businesses can contribute to the revitalization of the neighborhood, attracting more investment and improving the overall quality of life for residents.”

Ramirez said this expansion of businesses can provide jobs to the area “fostering a sense of belonging among residents.” The diverse roots of Northeast Kansas City can help local companies to grow, while also improving the Northeast economy.

“By starting their (own) businesses, participants of the series can provide employment opportunities to residents, as well as improve economic stability for their families,” Ramirez said. “They can introduce new cultural perspectives and diversity into the local business landscape of Kansas City.”
