Do you believe you have the entrepreneurial spirit? Perhaps you’ve invented a product, or developed a better way of doing something. Perhaps you simply want to work for yourself, own your own business, buy out your boss, or start an independent career. The NETC Entrepreneurship Development Fund could be your ticket to accomplishing this dream.
The first NETC Entrepreneurship Development Fund planning seminar will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at Northeastern Technical College’s main campus in Cheraw, room 212.
Any student taking classes at NETC or an alumnus ready to pursue a business venture or further develop an existing business can apply for the NETC Entrepreneurship Development Fund. Recipients will receive a seed money grant and hands-on guidance from business and marketing experts to help them achieve success and create jobs.
Raymond Tomasco, managing partner of Reesmarx USA and board member of the NETC Entrepreneurship Development Fund, will lead the presentation on how to become an entrepreneur and explain what makes an applicant qualify for the fund.
The NETC Entrepreneurship Development Fund was founded by Continuum Performance Systems to assist NETC alumni and students in realizing their vision. The board is committed to fostering and guiding this vision.
The purpose of the NETC Entrepreneurship Development Fund is to use the board’s experience in dealing with businesses of all shapes and sizes to help people who are seriously considering becoming entrepreneurs or are just starting out on their own.
The board will help you be a realist about yourself, in assessing the future, in your dealings with others, in your expectations and in setting your goals. The board can assist with funding and structure and keep you focused on the essence of entrepreneurship.
