GoalsTailor entrepreneurial education to CEO learning level.Increase programming to include a building blocks series for beginning entrepreneurs.Continue to provide our clients with a solid business foundation through coaching, training, housing and subsidized services.
Volunteers are an integral part of NBIC. Our educational programming relies heavily on industry leaders and specialists who offer their services in support of entrepreneurial training. NBIC also accepts volunteers desiring to work one-on-one with business owners. NBIC boasts a 2,000 square foot training center available for client and community use. The technology and furniture available for use in the training center is outdated. Smart classroom components are needed to fully utilize the room. The NBIC Student Business Incubation Center is in need of volunteers and supplies. Students chosen to participate in this program are given access to office space, laptops, business machines and follow the NBIC program for 12-months. General office supplies, technology, volunteers, and mentors are needed in support of this program.
NBIC is developing a digital, online resource library that will be available to the public. Among the resources will be training videos taken from our community training events. NBIC needs higher quality video production materials in support of this effort. Volunteers trained in video production and editing are also needed.
