Podcast with Ayesha Maxwell, Manager of Entrepreneurship Program at ACCESS

“To empower communities to improve their health and their economic, social and cultural well-being.” ~ACCESS

Join me today as I chat it up with Ayesha Maxwell, Manager of the Entrepreneurship Program at ACCESS Dearborn.

I met this amazing lady back in the fall  of 2022 after attending a conference focusing on female entrepreneurship. I had received an email invite to an upcoming conference taking place in Dearborn MI hosted by a local organization, ACCESS. I had worked with this agency during my time in Dearborn with both the DDA & Chamber of Commerce, so I was really excited to attend! As I read the details & description, to say the least I got even more interested! 

The conference was geared towards female entrepreneurs, which is right up my alley, so I registered right away… and I am so happy I did! The conference, cleverly titled LeadHER-ship was intentionally designed to host a smaller group in order to have a more intimate feel and allow the attendees to chat and get to know one another. 

ACCESS (Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services) has been serving the community for 50 years. Founded by a group of dedicated volunteers in 1971 out of a storefront in Dearborn’s impoverished south end, ACCESS was created to assist the Arab immigrant population adapt to life in the United States.

Today, ACCESS is the most comprehensive Arab American community nonprofit in the United States. With 10 locations and more than 120 programs serving metro Detroit, ACCESS offers a wide range of social, economic, health and educational services to a diverse population.

Ayesha shares today the programs available to all entrepreneurs, not just Arab Americans in Southeast Michigan along with resources for other areas.

If you are looking to start a business and just don’t know where to start, this may be just what you’ve been looking for.
