The Small Business Development program offers comprehensive small business training and resources to promote entrepreneurship, start or grow a small business, and create financial opportunity. LifeBridge has been providing small business training and support services to the Greater Bridgeport community for 18 years and has worked with more than 800 small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs over that time. Our goal is to provide the information, training, support and professional and peer network you need to pursue your small business goals.


The Small Business Development program offers workshops on a variety of topics to help small business owners grow and succeed. “Own Your Future” is a new small business training program and peer support system created by LifeBridge Community Services to promote entrepreneurship and create financial opportunity.

Curriculum – the Own Your Future program is a combination of four monthly workshops and semi-monthly peer Meet Ups.


Many of the entrepreneurs who have completed the WIBO program continue to develop and grow their businesses. Help support these local small business owners by considering them for your next project. A listing of small business owners can be found here.
