The Carlos Rosario School-Small Business Program was established in the fall of 2016, with the sole purpose of supporting adult immigrant English-language learners from around the world in their pursuit of entrepreneurship and the American Dream. The Small Business Program consists of a series workshop in both Spanish or English that helps the start-up entrepreneur evolve from idea, to concept and to the marketplace. As of fall 2020, there have been 300+ participants in the Small Business Program focused on artisan crafts, food services, construction services, commercial cleaning, import/export and professional services.
The Carlos Rosario School-Small Business Program is returning to La Cosecha and the Union Market District for the 3rd annual Holiday pop-up. Their Small Business Program will feature (4) different artisans popping up inside La Cosecha every weekend through 12/20.
