Events - Local entrepreneurs are encouraged to conduct or speak at BSC workshops and seminars and to volunteer to help plan, organize
and/or judge at any of our events. Please call us to discuss helping out with any of the following events:
- Business Plan Contests
- Speaker Series
- Annual Conference
- Entrepreneurs looking for consulting assistance are also encouraged to contact the CES to submit a request. The
Consulting Center will select particular cases from all the business requests, and group students to examine the problem(s) facing the business
and meet with the owner to formulate the business issue. The team has frequent interaction with the client (and a faculty member overseeing
the project) to develop the methodology, conduct the necessary research and analysis and draw conclusions. The resulting recommendation(s)
will be delivered in a final report and presented to the business owner and faculty member. The program gives entrepreneurs the invaluable
experience of having their situation analyzed and receive recommendations for improvement.
