Secrets of Today’s Youngest Millionaires Exposed

Posted By Administration, Monday, December 22, 2008
Concurrent Sessions: This presentation will inspire you and leave you with the key strategies used by today’s most successful young entrepreneurs. If you follow traditional business, you will get traditional results. If you follow the path of today’s rebel entrepreneurs who are making quantum leaps, you too can take quantum leaps. Louis Lautman, the Executive Producer of the YES movie traveled the country interviewing 50 of the nations most successful young self made multi millionaires and now shares their strategies to business success. This presentation will address issues that may be uncomfortable to some, but it is that discomfort that entrepreneurs must transcend in order to take their business and life to the next level. Business school and books teach traditional strategies or the “how” to be a successful business person, but Louis helps you understand the big “WHY,” and its effect on real life application. He will show you: The first steps to take. How to calculated risks. When to use leverage. Where to find mentors and partners. How to have massive growth. And much more. You will leave this session with key distinctions to take action on immediately and you will be wanting more. This session will assist you in mentoring, teaching development of and training entrepreneurship.

Plan-As-You-Go Business Planning

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 24, 2008

Plan-As-You-Go Business Planning

 

Guide Description:  

Business planning for the new world is about planning, not just the plan. This new approach, based on 30 years of Tim Berry’s work in the field, emphasizes planning for plan review, course correction and change. The heart of the plan is the strategy and the flesh and bones are the steps to take. Planning is for the company.

 

Full Description:  

Presentation Goals:

  • Introduce the Plan-As-You-Go approach to business planning. The plan-as-you go business plan is quicker and easier and a lot more practical than the old fashioned ponderous formal "THE BUSINESS PLAN" that so many people fear and dread. It’s the beginning of business planning for the next generation; agile, efficient, and effective.
  • Empower all faculties to use this new approach. Understand the key difference between the document-based business plan as hurdle mentality and the new conceptual plan-as-you-go planning, which is a process that leads to management. Understand the advantages.
  • Be able to counsel and train students on this new approach. Reduce the fear. Help them to get going, start anywhere, and plan their businesses better.

Presentation Outcomes/Impact:

  • Better understanding of why the planning is a constant process, focused on managing the company and moving in the right directions, rather than the development of a one-time document.
  • Development of college faculties to better help their students get started fast and start using planning process in a quick, practical way, and as soon as possible.

MAKING IT NEW: Local Use of a National Curriculum/Courseware Package

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 24, 2008

MAKING IT NEW: Local Use of a National Curriculum/Courseware Package

Guide Description:
A discussion of how programs/instructors can use an introductory course on innovation and take advantage of its high-quality multi-media and web-enhanced components to augment its distance education curriculum, or to enhance, or supplement, existing courses in a variety of disciplines.

Full Description:

MAKING IT NEW: Invention, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

A national multi-media curriculum and courseware package with web resources

Funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

During the past year, Contemporary Learning Systems has begun development of a curriculum of study on the topic of innovation and enrepreneurship. The project was inspired by the appearance of Harold Evans' book, THEY MADE AMERICA: From the Steam Engine to the Search Engine, Two Centuries of Innovators (Little, Brown, 2004) and the American Experience television series it inspired (shown on public TV stations nationally in 2004-2005).

There are 13 units in the proposed course clustered into five broad areas of innovation that transformed America. These course modules are: Power and Light, Information, Production and Consumption, Services and Social Entrepreneurship. The courseware package includes:

· the Evans book with profiles of 72 American innovators;

· 10 video episodes of approximately 20 minutes, each embedded with web resources and featuring new segments with Mr. Evans;

· an electronic book of readings and an electronic student study guide;

· a web-based faculty guide; a course website with an interactive component so that students and faculty can connect with course designers, including Mr. Evans and the academic team of advisors.

The course elements have been designed for an introductory course on innovation to be taught independently in a variety of disciplines (e.g. History, American Culture and Civilization, Business, Science, Technology and Society, etc.) or used separately as modules to enhance existing courses.

At the NACCE session, project directors will introduce all course elements for two pilot units - one on Steam and one on Computers - and discuss distribution plans for fall 2009. Attendees will be asked for their comments on the materials.

Training Fitness Professionals: An Exercise in Entrepreneurial Education

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 24, 2008

Training Fitness Professionals: An Exercise in Entrepreneurial Education

Guide Description: 
Discover how a Personal Fitness Trainer Certification course can provide your students the essential knowledge, skills and competencies to enter the workforce and succeed as a self employed trainer, business or franchise owner in the fitness industry. Learn how entrepreneurship education is infused into curriculum for both credit and non-credit.

Full Description:
The fitness industry is enjoying tremendous growth. Employment of fitness workers is expected to increase 27% by 2016; much faster than other occupations. More people spending time and money on fitness, and more businesses recognizing the benefits of fitness programs for employees has increased the demand for qualified professionals and training programs. Unfortunately, many of these programs lack hands-on practical training and “teach to the (certification) test.” Students become “good test takers” who are poorly trained and ill-prepared to enter the workforce and succeed as fitness professionals.

This presentation presents an alternative to this “test preparation” training; a collaborative strategy for infusing entrepreneurial and experiential education into fitness curriculum and training. Learn how fitness educators and practitioners joined college, university and corporate educators and trainers to create a Personal Fitness Trainer (PFT) Certification Program. The PFT is currently offered for credit, CEUs and non-credit in partnership with over 300 colleges and universities and is approved, accredited and/or recognized by leading education and fitness industry associations. Program content covers essential knowledge, skills and competencies (KSC) and curriculum delivery includes: theoretical foundations and scientific principles taught in the classroom (soon to be online;) hands-on training in a gym; and an internship, which places students into a business setting for experiential learning, knowledge application, mentoring and networking.

Attend this session and learn how to replicate and customize the PFT program for your students. Don't miss the opportunities in this growth industry and be a part of preparing students to enter the workforce as self-employed entrepreneurs and succeed as industry leaders.

A Tribal College Model for Entrepreneurship Camp Indian Youth

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 24, 2008

A Tribal College Model for Entrepreneurship Camp Indian Youth

Guide Description: The presenters will describe the model developed in 2008 for an entrepreneurship summer camp on the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College campus for high school Indian youth. Students participated in exercises and activities that integrated American Indian culture and values with basic entrepreneurial skill development.

Full Description: Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC) in northern Minnesota hosted its' first Entrepreneurship Camp for high school American Indian youth in 2008. The program integrated both Ojibwe culture and language into core business skills. Students never exposed to business before developed elevator pitches, created imaginary products to market and sell, learned the basics of entrepreneurship, and created individual American Indian Business Leaders (AIBL) Chapters for their home high schools. Staff included business faculty, student support staff, and FDLTCC business students who run a successful AIBL Chapter at FDLTCC that manages two successful on campus businesses. This fundamental exposure for high school students with no business experience is a model that can be easily replicated. The camp serves as a form of outreach that is indispensable to the recruitment and retention of students who are typically underrepresented in business programs in college. As a result of the summer program, a manual of culturally specific activities and lessons is in development. This manual will allow for the replication of such a camp on other college campuses by giving the “how to” strategies needed to be successful. Presenters will share both the model of the program, and a draft of the manual.

Student Entrepreneurship Clubs – Making Them Work on the Community College Campus

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Student Entrepreneurship Clubs – Making Them Work on the Community College Campus

 

Guide Description: 

Student entrepreneurship clubs are becoming an integral part of Entrepreneurship programs nationally. One such program - the Collegiate Entrepreneur’s Organization (CEO) currently has 140 chapters on college campuses nationwide.  In this session, a representative of CEO headquarters and a panel of CEO faculty advisors will focus on exchanging ideas on how to implement CEO on the Community College Campus.

 

Full Description:  

Student entrepreneurship clubs are becoming an integral part of Entrepreneurship programs nationally.

The clubs provide an added experiential learning vehicle where students can discuss their entrepreneurial aspirations, invite distinguished entrepreneurs to speak, tour businesses with the founders and even start part time

businesses. 

 

In 1984, Professor Gerry Hills cofounded a student membership entrepreneurship organization which eventually became the Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO), a national organization which today has chapters at 140 colleges and universities.  CEO hosts a national conference annually which draws over 1200 students from throughout the country.

 

The majority of current CEO chapters are at 4 years institutions. Currently, an important goal of CEO is to increase the number of chapters at Community Colleges so that those students might also reap the benefits of such experiences.  Recognizing that establishing student organizations at community colleges brings challenges different

from those at a 4 year institution, this conference session will focus on exchanging ideas on how to implement CEO on the community college campus. A representative of the CEO headquarters will provide an overview of the organization followed by a panel of faculty advisors from existing CEO chapters.

Wide Open Spaces-Erasing Miles and Creating Value Through Partnerships

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 18, 2008
Wide Open Spaces-Erasing Miles and Creating Value Through Partnerships

 

Guide Description:
Center for Enterprise creates value across their vast service area through partnerships with economic development groups and the use of interactive technology.  You’ll learn about a model that can work anywhere to create consistent, sustainable programs to assist entrepreneurs, generate regional growth, and create ongoing entrepreneur support networks.

 

Full Description:
The Center For Enterprise (CFE) serves 90,000 people in a 20,000 square mile area.  With dwindling populations and long commutes for services and job markets, a sustainable program to create, support, and grow entrepreneurs is essential.  The CFE has created such a model with an innovative combination of learning tools, technology, and partnerships.  

 

Working with ten economic development organizations, the CFE is assisting entrepreneurs across our vast region to develop quality business plans while building ongoing local networks to support entrepreneurs.  Programs are delivered using IP broadcasts and podcast are created for participants who may be unable to attend sessions.  Local entrepreneurship coalitions invest in the program by supporting local business coaches and assisting with student recruitment, follow-up needs assessments, and scholarship funding.  We train the entrepreneur coaches in order to create a consistent, knowledgeable support network.  The coalitions are given considerable flexibility to meet their local entrepreneur needs, while the CFE assures that the program is of reliable high quality.

 

We will explain the model and show NACCE participants they can use pieces of the model wherever they are to build quality programs.  We will share a sample podcast, a chart of the course delivery model, and a breakdown of responsibilities and costs shared by CFE and our economic development partners.  Participants will leave the classroom with handouts of the presentation as well as other promotion material used to support this program.
