Accepting Applications in South Florida
BROWARD/PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, in Florida State University’s College of Business, is accepting applications for its Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) and Nonprofit Executive Program (NPEP) in South Florida. Offered at no cost to participants, the programs are funded by The Jim Moran Foundation and Jim and Jan Moran. Application deadline is March 31.
The SBEP will be offered in both Broward and Palm Beach counties while the NPEP will be offered in Palm Beach County. The programs consist of nine sessions, each focusing on a particular aspect of growing a business or nonprofit. Starting in July and running through November, the sessions will be held every other week from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Qualified applicants must be actively involved in running a business, be a key decision-maker and their company must have been established for at least three years with five or more employees (or volunteers if the company is a nonprofit).
The SBEP and NPEP are designed for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, presidents and executive directors of small businesses and nonprofit organizations. Graduates emerge with the skills and training needed to capitalize on business opportunities, implement best practice management and turn challenges into strategic advantage. Participants represent a variety of industries, including construction, technology, healthcare, fashion and law.
“We look forward to working with a new set of entrepreneurs and nonprofit executives, who recognize the benefits of continued education and want to take their businesses to the next level,” said Jennifer Kovach, director of the Jim Moran Institute’s South Florida Operations. “Learning from others who have shared similar struggles and overcome obstacles is a wonderful way to move forward in today’s highly competitive market.”
Program graduates receive a certificate and have the opportunity to be a part of a peer roundtable. They are also encouraged to participate in workshops, conferences, and other Jim Moran Institute events.
