The MyBiz Project:  Value-Added Entrepreneurial Community Targeted Partnerships


Guide Description:
Thumbnail sketch of new initiative in Mississippi by Hinds Community College to carry entrepreneurial activities out into grassroots small rural communities in the college district.  Presentation will characterize the mission to identify community entrepreneur “champions”, details program methods, and strategies for implementing entrepreneur partnerships between the college and targeted communities.


Full Description:
Small businesses create a lion’s share of new revenue streams, profit making, and new jobs in America.  Encouragement to stimulate entrepreneur activities within small rural communities is a dire need in this country.  Hinds Community College in league with a state funding source known as The Montgomery Institute have joined in an effort to roll out a new entrepreneur outreach program called the MyBiz Entrepreneur Network. 

            MyBiz is a localized “network” that connects, links, and ties together communities, entrepreneurs, and small business owners to programs and service providers at the local, regional, state, and national levels.  The MyBiz network will be used by economic developers, chambers of commerce, community leaders, and others to promote more and better small business growth in their communities. 

            In the Hinds Community College district the targeted communities for MyBiz will initially focus on low and moderate income communities where economic stimulation is most needed.  The project strategy is to identify one community leader “champion” who will join in force with the college MyBiz staff to promote entrepreneur building activities in these communities.  How-to activities and practical strategies and tactics will be presented.

            Work will also be conducted on building the MyBiz web site resource tool providing information to interested potential entrepreneurs for contact information and details for service providers across the region and state.  MyBiz is designed to be a program to spur growth of small businesses and a new localized entrepreneurship mind set.
