    Dr. K is awesome! As a SURE alum I am so excited to see her getting this kind of attention. Because of these articles, SURE is able to expand its platform and that’s what Dr. K would want. The SURE Program helped me understand the business part of my work especially the part most business owners are confused about, finances. SURE provides so many resources no matter where you are in your business. Most importantly, Dr. K and and Charlie Becker make sure we are a family. We all encourage, support and uplift each other well after our time in the program. I would recommend SURE to small business owners and start-ups. It will definitely change the way you see business and do business. Congrats Dr. K you ROCK!

    It’s been over a year since I participated in the SURE Program. Dr. K’s passion and enthusiasm for aspiring entrepreneurs is exactly what one needs when first getting started. I’ve participated in a few start-up/entrepreneur programs and this program definitely exceeds the rest. Thank you University of Houston and Dr. K for your passion to help small businesses!

    Professor Saleha Khumawala’s SURE Program at the University of Houston CT Bauer College of Business demonstrates the strength of the human spirit as the “under-resourced” demographics are empowered while they work their dreams of becoming business owners into reality.

    The SURE program was one of the first experiential courses I took during my MBA at UH, and I can’t recommend it enough. This program gives you the ability to gain experience as a consultant with real entrepreneurs running real businesses. During the weekly sessions, you have the chance to learn from and meet with speakers from some of the nation’s strongest firms in finance, accounting, and consulting. You come into the program looking to build a business plan, but what you come away with is much more than that.
