I'd like strategic advice on curating online community for a student small business incubator program offered through my Entrepreneurship Program, and provided at a Maine community college.
Participants will include students in low-income households who are enrolled in Business, Early Childhood Education, and Trades (electrical, heavy equipment, welding, small engine repair, etc.) programs and interested in starting their own business upon graduation. The incubator program will support these students (20-25 in total) throughout their education, assisting with barrier removal while helping them work through the building blocks of business ownership."Phone Calls" are 1 hour, one-time calls with an organization. Learn the difference between volunteering on a Phone Call and a Project here.
The Sunrise County Economic Council initiates and facilitates the creation of jobs and prosperity in Washington County, Maine, by working with a consortium of community-minded businesses, not-for-profit organizations, municipalities and citizens.
SCEC was founded in 1993 by a group of business and community leaders and actively promotes a grassroots approach to economic and community development. By seeking common ground, working across traditional political, municipal and economic boundaries, the Council is working with Washington County residents to build a brighter future.
Shubha was very helpful! She offered to send along other ideas and thoughts as they come up and left the door open if I should have any future questions. Talking through the project's various components and gaining Shubha's insight throughout the call will help me prepare a more beneficial incubator program.
I had a very interesting conversation with Denise. It was humbling to know all that her organisation is doing to build the lives of some of the deserving young adults!
