On June 22, 2010, the Southeast College held its first Entrepreneur Boot Camp in the lecture hall of the Angela Morales building. The Boot Camp was attended by people who are interested in starting their own business. We would like to thank our sponsors who helped make this possible-
Best Buy furnished the newest IPOD for a drawing,
Shipley Donuts provided breakfast,
Hartz Chicken donated lunch and
Tejas Office Supplies gave office products to the students.
Five guest speakers, all very successful entrepreneurs, provided important information and inspired the participants with their personal experiences at starting a business and overcoming obstacles to reach success.
