City Center Waco is helping equip entrepreneurs in starting successful businesses through a 16-week workshop called Workshop in Business Opportunities (WIBO).

The workshop seeks to help hopeful or current business owners learn how to start and grow a successful business.

Experts and mentors from Central Texas help head the 16-week program.

Kevin Renois, Program Director at City Venture Waco, said the program is right in line with City Center Waco's vision with the development of downtown and developing the people who want to populate downtown Waco.

"This like this [workshop], things like other programs going on around town, many people are interested to see how can we best equip the entrepreneurs and people who want to populate those storefronts with the right tools to be able to run good businesses, not just plain businesses," Renois said.

WIBO started on Thursday and has limited space. If you are interested in attending the 16-week workshop, contact Kevin Renois at
