Things are coming along very well here at LCCC! We have had 10 dislocated workers complete the Entrepreneurial Bootcamp so far. They are on their way to developing business plans and meeting with their mentors this month for further assistance. One participant has changed her business idea after learning how to research the market in the Bootcamp.
Next month (July) we have a special workshop for our participants to go through - they will be learning how to present themselves and their business ideas to the banks and potential investors. This is an important piece of securing funding that is needed to start their own businesses. Once they complete this workshop, they will continue to prepare their business plans and start applying for the mini grants that we are offering, made possible by the Coleman Elevator Grant.
As if that isn't enough activity....we are on our way to brand new curriculum for our Entrepreneurial Bootcamp - the new curriculum is packed with great activities for our students that will enable them to work on their own individual ideas for their businesses. At the end of the Bootcamp they will have a personal portfolio filled with the beginning of their plans, market research, and action plans for getting their businesses off the ground. We can't wait to put the new curriculum to use in July!
