In 2012 Helping Others Pursue Excellence was founded. H.O.P.E. is a 501C3 non-profit vocational training and entrepreneurship program.….
The vision was inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of Laneesha Senegal. As a low-income mother of five (5), Laneesha experienced firsthand the struggle of barely making ends meet. Multiple nights without power and heat and even a shortage of food sparked her interest to start a business.
While navigating life’s journey, Laneesha started to encounter daily a growing number of individuals with the same passion to create a business. However, in the start-up phase they too were met with many of the same poverty challenges. For some it was the basic understanding of the paperwork needed to operate. For others it was the challenge to generate funding to develop marketing materials or the technical assistance to access resources. While they too were struggling to put gas in their car or even more extreme, were homeless, they each shared the dream to launch a business.
While growing her business, the No’s and the business rejections Laneesha encountered is what fueled her drive to help others. Thus, to remove the barriers preventing other entrepreneurs like Laneesha the opportunity to realize their dreams, she wrote the vision for the Vision View Business Formation Center. Vision View is now one of the largest and most comprehensive entrepreneurship centers in the central valley. The motto for Vision View is “Where One’s Vision is Without Limits”
