MCC Offers Program to Help Launch Businesses
Middlesex Community College is offering Launch Your Business Now, an innovative, new, applied-entrepreneurship certificate program designed to encourage students to start or grow a business.
Developed for entrepreneurs who have an idea for a business they want to launch, or scale up, within four to 12 months, Launch Your Business Now also incorporates an opportunity to be awarded seed money and mentoring through the Everyday Entrepreneurs Venture Fund to help promising start-ups get off the ground.
MCC’s new 16-credit, entrepreneurship certificate program is ideal for students with innovative and conventional business ideas.
Through course work, and workshops offered via MCC’s IDEA Center, students enrolled in the 16-week program will evaluate market opportunity, test assumptions, and set up systems to successfully launch a business. Those systems include bookkeeping, marketing strategies, sales principles, operations and financing.
