Event Details:

Did you know that people with disabilities are significantly MORE likely to start their own businesses than people without disabilities? Self-employment can solve issues of transportation, flexible scheduling, and enable talented people with disabilities to both thrive and help their communities.

Our nation’s vocational rehabilitation (VR) system is a crucial means for getting people with disabilities into the workforce or back to work after acquiring a disability. They also have professionals and funding to support the creation of disability-owned businesses.

The Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services (IVRS) agency has had incredible success training their clients to become entrepreneurs. This free online webinar shared how they are doing it – and what ideas can help others succeed.

IVRS’s successful entrepreneur program has two designated business specialists and is informed by a statewide self-employment committee cadre that is tasked with reviewing policy and procedures to enhance employment outcomes and services for individuals interested in developing their business. It is an ideal model during a time when many are teleworking and outreach and entrepreneurship can be done online.
