My experience with this company has been mostly through my dealings and experiences with the founder Juliana Cardona Mejia. Ms. Juliana, a truly remarkable human being whose only interest is to help others harness their true potential and become their best versions! No free handouts, but a helping hand! An amazing entrepreneur at such young age, able to form a great team and a network of true leaders in their industries who have come together (thanks to her efforts) to help aspiring entrepreneurs. I hope the work of Street Entrepreneurs will continue for many years to come and expand throughout the entire country. We need more people like Juliana. I highly encourage anyone looking to support/finance a great nonprofit making a huge difference, to consider this one.
I am a full-time college student that was looking for some free workshops to learn about how to manage my finances, since I wanted to save money for summer travels. Street Entrepreneurs came across really quickly, since it was right by my university. I visited their workshop and got inspired by their work, that decided to volunteer there. I started helping with organization of workshops and later on this experience helped me to get a very prestigious internship.
Street Entrepreneurs is a good company that helps you to achieve goals. I have small business running and it was not going well, because I was not knowing what I am doing, and it was a total mess. I started participating in their activities and at some point they offered me mentorship with one of the successful entrepreneurs. Not only I created a clear order and strategy for my business which is doing very well now, but also my mentor helped me to create balance in my life.
I came across Street Entrepreneurs when wanted to start my own business but did not know where to start, so came to couple of the workshops. I really liked that they did not just deliver theory but were providing tips and tricks of how to do certain things and their workshops were interactive and practical. With their help I created my business plan and found partners to start business.
Volunteering for Street Entrepreneurs has been a great experience for me. I do not only learn a lot of new things and skills that I will need in the future, but I also know that my work has a positive impact on people’s lives. I joined Street Entrepreneurs because I wanted to learn more about start-ups and help people who have the grit to change their lives and help other people. I get to work in different interesting projects and constantly learn and advance my traits. Every job I do I get to see the result and impact which motivates me every time, and it is something I really missed working in the bank.
I The reason why I chose to volunteer in Street Entrepreneurs is that they have different programs so each person can find help and for me, it was an opportunity to participate in different projects.
When I first heard about Street Entrepreneurs, it's mission immediately piqued my interest. As a TV news journalist, I have seen how under-served segments of our society become trapped in a vicious cycle, in which poverty and lack of education propagate from one generation to the next. It's frustrating to see how, because of that, so much potential and talent can go wasted and misdirected. S.E. aims to provide that much needed stepping stone, giving those with the will a way -- a hand up so they can succeed and eventually assist others in doing the same. For me donating to this cause is the same as helping plant a seed that can give exponential results, which will benefit not only the beneficiary, but an entire society.
