Giving Entrepreneurs a Leg Up
Entrepreneurs help communities grow from within. SEBREA gives entrepreneurs a leg up, connecting them with the knowledge and resources needed to launch new businesses.
SEBREA engages experts to provide both express and in-depth training in getting a new business off the ground.
Providing the Tools to Launch a Business
A partnership between SEBREA, Lamar Community College and the Wal-Mart Foundation has established an entrepreneurship program to help business owners further their professional development. Initial workshops explore how to minimize risk, learn from mentors, create a business plan, and address legal issues.
Entrepreneurship programs at both area colleges provide a detailed look at what is involved in establishing a business. Occasionally, SEBREA provides scholarships for aspiring local entrepreneurs to participate in seminars explaining what it takes to launch a viable business.
Teaching Communities to Nurture New Business
Fledgling businesses have a much greater survival rate when they receive community support. SEBREA funds opportunities for Southeast Colorado communities to learn more about nurturing and supporting entrepreneurial ventures.
