Wow! I am so excited to be a part of growing entrepreneurship in my area and state! The entrepreneurship ride has already started for us here at JCJC. My grant was written to begin January 1, 2011 and run through December 31, 2011, but the groundwork is being laid for the kick-off in January.
The past month has been filled with meetings and discussions of entrepreneurship development. The Coleman Grant Award was announced in our employee newsletter "The Monday Morning News” and since that Faculty on campus have been a buzz of great things to come and how they can help me get it going on campus. I am super excited by the support from my fellow faculty members!
For planning purposes I want to include some of the meetings I have had over the last month preparing for the grant to start in January 2011:
· Dean of the College of Business and Technology
· Grant Office Director
· Vice President of the JCJC Foundation
· Business and Marketing Faculty Round Table
· Jones County Economic Development Authority
