This guide describes seven model programs that were developed by the Finger Lakes Regional Center for Economic Development (New York) to meet the training needs of female and minority entrepreneurs to help their businesses survive and grow and to assist disabled and dislocated workers and youth in beginning small businesses. The first three models presented are geared toward helping female urban, suburban, and rural entrepreneurs (developed by Monroe Community College, the Wayne/Finger Lakes Board of Cooperative Educational Services, and Genesee Community College, respectively). A minority entrepreneurship model (developed by the Rochester City School District), entrepreneurship for the disabled model (developed by Monroe Community College), dislocated worker entrepreneurship model (developed by the Rochester Institute of Technology), and youth entrepreneurship model (developed by the Finger Lakes Regional Education Center for Economic Development) are also included in the guide. Each of these models includes an introduction; steps to follow in setting up a program for the target audience; a summary of additional critical points; and sample press releases, memos, and questionnaires.
