"Brianna Edwards has a big, bold and flavorful dream.
The creator behind a line of low-sodium spice mixes, LOV3 IT S3ASONING, Edwards wants to see her bottles on store shelves across the country. To get there, she’s turned to the University of St. Thomas and the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship.
Edwards is part of the very first cohort of the Community Entrepreneurship Program. The 10-month, hands-on program, offered in conjunction with the Small Business Development Center, supports aspiring Twin Cities entrepreneurs as they develop big ideas and prepare for life as small business owners.
'I’m a really big dreamer,” Edwards said. 'I’ve had to learn to take it step by step. This program helped me figure out that this is a marathon not a sprint.'"
Through our Twin Cities Racial Equity (TCRE) initiative, GHR works to be of service to and in partnership with Black, Indigenous, and people of color, (BI-POC) businesses and communities in the development and acquisition of assets that advance and provide access to economic opportunity and community development.
