Nashville Entrepreneurship Program Records Largest Closing Yet

The Academy, an entrepreneurship program designed to benefit low-income communities, held its largest graduation ceremony Tuesday, with 150 graduates.

“This is a neighborhood block party and a neighborhood celebration so people know they root for them and are proud of them,” said Shana Berkeley, executive director of Corner to Corner.

Corner to Corner, the non-profit organization that sponsors The Academy, held the graduation ceremony near downtown Nashville. Students, families, and friends gathered at Rocketown, a “faith-based youth service organization” founded by Christian music artist Michael W. Smith.

According to Berkeley, the Academy offers a high-quality curriculum for young entrepreneurs.

“The Academy is our entrepreneurship program where we help underappreciated entrepreneurs plan, start and grow their own small businesses,” said Berkeley. “As a person with a doctorate, I knew the quality of the training in the curriculum.”
