Entrepreneurship and small business are at the heart of the U. S. economy and will be instrumental in stimulating job growth in the 21st Century. Small businesses provide the majority of private sector jobs and will generate the greatest number of new jobs in the next decade.
Entrepreneurship is the American dream supported by the knowledge, ability, and resources to operate a successful business. At Catawba Valley Community College, our Entrepreneurship Program will provide our students with the necessary tools to achieve their goal of starting and successfully running their own business.
Our Program focuses on the key principles of Entrepreneurship. It is not a general business program. Our goal is to instill an Entrepreneurial Vision and Desire, which will provide our students with ability to recognize opportunities, make informed decisions and have their dream become a reality.
Our Program will provide the essential knowledge and skills to enable existing entrepreneurs to grow their business and aid prospective entrepreneurs successfully establish a new venture.
