Many thanks to Janice Washington, Arizona State Director of Small Business Development Center Network, for her exercise on "How SBDCs and Community Colleges Can Help the New and Existing Entrepreneurs".
At the Rio Salado NACCE Summit lunch, Janice planted an entrepreneur, SBDC or PTAC, and community college member at each lunch table to incite a discussion on 3 questions.
- What programs or initiatives are already going on in your college, business or community?
- What is working now that can be expanded or enhanced?
- What would you like to or what could you create together?
Each table is discussing the questions and will report back on ACTIONABLE next steps. Otis White is getting each table's discussion for NACCE to share so members can get some good ideas.
Thanks Janice and Otis!
