The Bless Back Business Academy was founded in June 2015 to fill a knowledge gap for small businesses in Nicaragua, the 2nd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere (Reference Link).

Small businesses and cottage industries are key economic drivers in small towns throughout Nicaragua, however, the owners have little to no business training and, as a result, struggle to make a profit.

The vision of the Business Academy is to teach basic business principles to these small business owners, who otherwise have no access to high quality business coaching and training.
