Just sat in on some of the preliminary live presentations
for the NACCE
Entrepreneurial College in Action Grants, powered by the Coleman Foundation.
The focus this year is on programs that promote the first two steps of the
Presidents for Entrepreneurship Pledge. Grants of up to $15,000 will go to
colleges that create and expand internal and external teams dedicated to
entrepreneurship or increase entrepreneurs’ engagement on campus.
From the three presentations I watched, the judges have
their work cut out for them. South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, AZ;
Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne, IN, and Houston Community College – Northwest, in
Houston, TX, all made compelling presentations while I sat in. I’m sure the
other finalists are going a similar good job this afternoon. Winners will be
announced at breakfast on Wednesday. Good luck to all!
