Reading Time: < 1 minute

Ivy Tech Community College has established a new School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation. Ivy Tech says the school was launched in partnership with Regional Innovation and Startup Education to offer an Entrepreneurship Certificate program that can be completed in two semesters.

The program provides courses and resources for coaching, mentorship, and an “Ivy Shark Tank” experience where students can pitch to investors for funding. Ivy Tech says the program is being offered at its campuses in Bloomington, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and South Bend.

“Even before the pandemic, small businesses were struggling to find success, often because owners had a passion and a skill for developing a great product or service, but they lacked the tools needed to effectively run the business,” said Dr. Ronda Taylor, dean of the Garatoni School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Ivy Tech. “Our program is set up to provide practical skills students can put into action immediately around topics such as marketing, financials, human resources, and legal considerations.”
