Andrew Goldberg, Founder/Director of Asian Business Training & Mentorship Program, will be discussing the Asian Business Training & Mentorship Program (ABTM): Creating community and building social capital for those who lack it. ABTM is the first and only entrepreneurship training program in Massachusetts designed by and for Asian entrepreneurs with language and cultural capacity. ABTM provides a safe space for Asian entrepreneurs to pivot from working in (owner-employee mentality) to working on the business (owner-strategist mentality).
