The Dallas Mavericks have partnered with The Lonely Entrepreneur to empower 100 diverse entrepreneurs with the access to knowledge, tools, and support they need to succeed as part of the Mavs Business Assist (MBA) program. The program is open for applications from now until July 31.
In this program, selected entrepreneurs will gain one year of free access to The Lonely Entrepreneur Learning Community – a comprehensive resource for the knowledge, tools, and support every entrepreneur needs.
