Entrepreneurship for Women

Congratulations to Stephanie Ferebee, Melissa Peele and Grayce Nance for successfully completing the Entrepreneurship course and presenting their business plans, in which they created, to a business panel.  These ladies were awarded seed money to begin their very own business. This eight week series trained students how to start a business.  This course focused on creating a business plan, marketing, taxes and much more. This session was free and opened to the public. This series is offered once a semester.
