Adrian College putting entrepreneurs through small-business boot camp

Michigan’s Adrian College is helping entrepreneurs and small business owners get the help they need to get their new businesses off the ground with a three-day business “boot camp” at the school’s Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies.

The courses will be taught by school faculty and various local business leaders, and will help area entrepreneurs network with established business leaders and better understand the issues that may be keeping them from forming a company.

The program – which is supported by the Lenawee Economic Development Corporation – will also serve to provide small business owners with mentors, who can help give them advice about running their businesses, even after the program ends.

“It doesn’t necessarily mean they will have answers to the problems,” Oded Gur-Arie, business professor at Adrian College and director of the institute, told the Daily Telegram. “Just to have a mentor would be a (boost),” he said.

The cost of the program is $100 – which also covers the cost of meals for all three days – compared to the thousands of dollars the school says traditional training sessions can cost. The school can also provide housing for entrepreneurs who don’t want to commute every morning.ADNFCR-3052-ID-19876746-ADNFCR
