IWCC Names Entrepreneur-In-Residence

Posted By Julie Mierau, Monday, March 9, 2009

On March 2, 2009, Iowa Western Community College named Mark Ford its first Entrepreneur-In-Residence. Ford is a business coach, consultant and speaker based in Glenwood, Ia.

Our newly established Entrepreneur-In-Residence program gives our students and faculty another resource when they are examining what it takes to start and maintain a business. Ford has worked extensively with business owners in the Omaha metro and in Southwest Iowa, but the real advantage for us is his passion for entrepreneurship.
Ford will spend the remainder of the spring term offering on-campus expertise and assistance, as well as meeting with community groups and others interested in supporting sustainable entrepreneurship programs. He is a counselor with the Iowa Small Business Development Centers, housed at IWCC, and is chair of the Mills County Entrepreneurial Team, a grassroots effort spearheaded by IWCC and supported in part by the Southwest Iowa Foundation.
Candidates for the summer and fall term Entrepreneur-In-Residence position will be considered later this spring, with announcements being made by May 15.
