IU Southeast School of Business offers workshop to local entrepreneurs

10th February 2011

NEW ALBANY, IN (Feb. 10, 2011) – Developing great entrepreneurial skills takes work, time, and creative thinking. Interested entrepreneurs can strengthen those skills and more at a workshop offered by Indiana University Southeast.

This spring the IU Southeast School of Business and the Regional Economic Development Resource Center (REDRC) are hosting “Building Your Entrepreneurial Skills: Do I have what it takes?” 

The eight-week program will meet from 5:45-8:45 p.m. every Monday (except March 21) from March 7 through May 2, in IU Southeast University Center North, room 122.

This non-credit workshop is a “no-pressure” environment geared toward current business owners and managers, recently displaced workers, or anyone who wonders if they have what it takes to bring their entrepreneurial vision to life. Throughout the course, budding entrepreneurs and established business owners will have the opportunity to explore and hone the skills necessary to build or grow their own businesses.

Mike Breazeale, assistant professor of marketing at IU Southeast, will facilitate the workshop and guide participants through some of the pitfalls and successes that entrepreneurs face. Participants will benefit from interaction with their fellow entrepreneurs and the selected printed materials, as well as hearing about Breazeale’s personal experience as the owner of several successful business ventures.

The registration fee, which includes all materials, is $79. For more information, visit www.ius.edu/business or contact Brenda Swartz at (812) 941-2492.
