Our just-announced FITE Entrepreneurship Accelerator is a new model of online, purpose-driven education that fills critical business skills gaps to help small, entrepreneurial businesses grow to scale. Our first phase will focus on helping entrepreneurs in the salon industry achieve their highest success; but our ambition is to serve as a blueprint that other sectors can adopt to help truly accelerate entrepreneurship and financial dignity.
