BUSINESS

SHOWERS

Business Showers is a non-profit based in Charlotte, NC that was created during a world pandemic in response to the growing demand for businesses to launch as so many were closing. Freedom In Me took action to give back to our community in hopes of helping to build an economy even stronger than before. Though we offer business coaching and consulting at affordable rates, we gift one business per month totally free with a business shower. 

HOW WE DO IT!

Freedom In Me partners with our community to identify and host monthly Business Showers to start up businesses and non-profits. This in-kind, community giving program is designed to connect new businesses to people and resources. 

We collaborate with like-minded businesses across the United States who share in our mission to help us welcome, celebrate and shower new business owners with essentials to launch. Our idea clients are entrepreneurs trying to launch or scale their businesses.

 

Some things that we gift these businesses include; but, are not limited to: Marketing services, website creation, materials, logos, legal entity filing fees, ect. You give us the need and we get to work. We love challenges.

Our vision is simple: To increase the success rate for small business owners within the first 1-3 years of business. 

It is our hope that by gifting rising entrepreneurs with skills and services needed for a solid foundation, we will build stronger and more financially sound communities. 

 

When community comes together, we create new opportunities for each other, our families and become positive contributors to our society through business.
