The City of Miramar Economic Development and Housing Department, through its Miramar Business Academy (MBA) is presenting its summer 2024 program. The goal of the MBA program is to help individuals and local entrepreneurs assess business opportunities, build successful businesses, and create wealth.

The summer 2024 program is focused on helping entrepreneurs and small business owners prepare for applying for grants, microloans, and small business loans from their municipalities, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), foundations, corporate sponsors, and traditional financial sources.

The Miramar Business Academy (MBA), in partnership with SCORE Broward, is a program that consists of 6 webinars, held once a week and 2 optional in-person sessions, from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, over 8 weeks. After completing all of the 6 webinars, participants can submit a business plan and become MBA Graduates, receive a Graduation Certificate and be honored at a ceremony at City Hall by the City of Miramar’s Economic Development & Housing Department.

This MBA program is designed for new as well as existing small businesses. The program will include the thought process and actions necessary to start and grow successful businesses.

Miramar Business Academy (MBA) graduates who are residents of the City of Miramar or own businesses in Miramar, will be eligible to apply for a small business grant up to $10,000 with the submission of a business plan. The plan should detail one or more eligible uses of the grant funds. As an investment in our entrepreneurs and local business owners, all classes will be offered free.

Non-residents will receive information on other sources they can apply to for grants and loans.

There will be two optional in-person sessions to provide hands on assistance in writing a business plan and calculating financial projections. SCORE Mentors will be available to work with the participants.
