Empowering the Extraordinary

  • The Abbey 100 South Eola Drive Orlando, FL, 32801 United States (map)

Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida and the National Down Syndrome Entrepreneur Academy gives individuals with Down syndrome a path towards productive adulthood financial independence by empowering them with the education and skill training to start their own business. This life-changing program is the first of its kind in the nation for people with Down syndrome, and sets a new standard for how communities empower individuals with disabilities.

This exciting event will introduce the EA’s second class of entrepreneurs to our community as they present their businesses and discuss how their lives have been transformed by the program. Our CEOs will present about their company, what they accomplished, and where they intend to go next.

We will have gourmet food sponsored by Talk of the Town Restaurant Group! Join us for an evening of networking, inspiration, and empowerment!
