Northeast Regional Council grants $100,000 to Business to College Program at Northeastern Junior College and Morgan Community College to foster jobs and local business leaders

The Northeast Regional Council has made an impact by focusing on economic development and the fostering of an entrepreneurial spirit.  The Council created Business to College, an opportunity for local business owners to enroll in a class designed to learn the skills to successfully run a business, including budgeting and marketing. At the culmination of the class, participants pitch their business plan to a panel of judges. The winner is awarded up to $25,000 to put towards their business venture. The Council partnered with Northeastern Junior College and Morgan Community College to provide the classes.  The Northeast Regional Council made a $50,000 grant to each school to cover the cost of the curriculum and the prize money for the winning business.  This program has been successful in creating jobs in the region and establishing sound business practices in local business leaders. Moving forward, the Council will engage with local partners and community leaders to make the program self-sustaining.
