NCRF Entrepreneur Program

National College Resources Foundation Entrepreneurial Program is a partnership with HBCUstartups. HBCUstartups was founded by NCRF alumni Ronell Miller. Ronell attended the Black College Expo in 2012 and got connected to North Carolina A&T where he pursued a degree in business. Ronell has a degree in International Business and has worked with Congressional Candidates to help manage financial campaign data to ensure money was allocated appropriately on the campaign trail. His original goal was to be a diplomat, however his excitement of entrepreneurship drew him to start a business. Mr. Miller also volunteers his time with the Black College Expo to help organize our “How to Start a Business” Seminar at our expos around the country.  He started HBCUstartups as a way to connect young people of color attending HBCUs that wanted to start a business and have a platform to grow their businesses online. HBCUstartups is an e-commerce platform like Amazon for underrepresented entrepreneurs around the country.

Mr. Miller is also Co-Founder of Small World Social Media, where they create content, run ad campaigns, and facilitate digital marketing partnerships. Mr. Miller serves on the Advisory Board of a nonprofit youth entrepreneurship program called Target Evolution. He has a passion for teaching youth all about business and politics.

We host “Becoming an Entrepreneur-How to Start a Business” at each of our College Expos and host an Annual Entrepreneur Summit powered by HBCUstartups.

The goal of NCRF’s Entrepreneur Program is to create more entrepreneurs of color, especially from black and brown communities to own businesses that will be able to bring more jobs and career opportunities to their community. At the same time we want to create an ecosystem for minority businesses to build a network to work with each other to establish best practices to survive and grow their business. There will be a series of entrepreneurial boot camps and programs for students to LEARN, GROW and DEVELOP their entrepreneurial pursuits.

We will have forums on:

How to Start a Business

How to Create a Business Plan

How to Fund your Business

How to Market your Business

How to Trademark Your Business

How to get a Patent
