OUR ANNUAL REPORTS ARE
[April 2021] The NSUIC is excited to share that our first "report card" has been published and is available for download. In just a short period of time -- since March, 2019 -- we have made significant strides, serving more than 1,000 entrepreneurs by providing training, education, and programs that help them launch, establish, and grow their businesses! We are looking forward to continuing to provide much-needed resources to underserved entrepreneurs in Hampton Roads.
