What Our Alumni Have to Say

“I went in and it was a complete awakening because they taught me everything I needed to know on how to operate a proper business on a large scale, in the United States.”

“Macy’s taught me how to budget and gave me all the financial tools to monitor my money.  Macy’s taught me how to plan and forecast.  When you’re a small business you don’t do all that”

“Macy’s has taught me how to foster a team.  Before I was doing everything on my own.”

Mateo New York

“You never know where it will take you”

“It gives you the time and tools to step outside of your day to day and reevaluate what you’re doing”

“Every entrepreneur that feels that they are right for The Workshop should apply”

Alex Woo

“An excellent window into what is Macy’s”

“It was a mini MBA”

“We were able to have direct implementation plan that next Monday”

“The entire week proved to be our bold AHA! moment”

Twelve NYC

“As a result of the program, we have found mentors and allies who have helped us with financing, growth strategies, and other resources”

“We would have never been able to launch in large retail without the knowledge that was presented at The Workshop at Macy’s”
