Our CUE to get involved

Our CUE to get involved –

Ebony Miller of The Center for Urban Entrepreneurship (CUE) delivered an inspiring talk to a group of Rochester Hispanic Business Association members at the Rochester Business Alliance offices on State Street this Tuesday, she was accompanied by her associate Kimberly Heck.

Not long ago Ebony Miller was appointed Program Manager of CUE, where she is responsible for three programs that are currently underway: Future Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs (FBLE), Lemonade Day and The Capacity Building Program.

Ebony is passionate about our community and her passion is infectious. She is inspired to do her work by looking to the past, to when Rochester had a thriving downtown corridor. Having grown up in Rochester, she recalls riding the monorail in Midtown plaza as a child and would love nothing more than to see Rochester’s downtown return to the vibrant setting it once was. She recalls Sibley’s and McCurdy’s bringing life to the city through their business and aims to help us enjoy downtown once again through her work at CUE.

There is opportunity all around us, not only downtown but in every quadrant of the city, and “at CUE, our goal is to help reshape the regional economy and build wealth within the urban community by being the hub for urban entrepreneurial programs” said Miller on July 21, 2015.

Once their doors open at their permanent location, which will hopefully happen within the next 6-8 weeks, they will be adding monthly workshops as well as starting up their third cohort of The Capacity Building Program. In addition to the aforementioned programs, Miller also provided some background information about the building that will house CUE.
