Partnership Links Students to Region’s Top Business Owners

EO is collaborating with MDC to offer seminars, develop joint programs and mentor students.

The Idea Center has partnered with the South Florida chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO-SOFLO) to bring additional opportunities for aspiring student entrepreneurs at MDC and local startups.

EO-SOFLO – whose members’ businesses account for more than $1 billion in annual revenues and 30,000 jobs in the region – will collaborate to offer seminars, develop joint programs and mentor students. The events will highlight EO Accelerator, a program featuring educational content in four key issues faced by startups and first-stage entrepreneurs: strategic planning, sales and marketing, human resources and finance.

The Idea Center and EO also are planning the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards in early 2016, a competition that provides student entrepreneurs a combined $150,000 in prize money and mentoring from some of the world’s top business owners.
