Ability Now has a small business development center which provides a unique self-employment training program, vendored by the State of California, for people with developmental disabilities. This distinctive, cutting-edge program guides participants to create a business tailored to their individual interests and goals and develop a business plan for its success.
Operated as a small business incubator, the small business center provides a roadmap with measurable benchmarks as participants go through four phases of business development: Discovery, Feasibility & Business Planning, Launch and Ongoing Support. The participants gain hands-on business experience in learning how to start, structure, and run their own business. Once the business is launched, the Center provides ongoing support to help sustain the entrepreneurial experience for the participant.
