Southeast Community College's Entrepreneurship Center is rising
to the challenge offered by the president and CEO of the National
Association of Community College Entrepreneurship, Rebecca Corbin,
to join organizations across the world in celebrating Women's
Entrepreneurship Day, Thursday, Nov. 19.
Brooke Lenhoff, assistant director of the SCC Entrepreneurship
Center at 285 S. 68th St. Place, Lincoln, will host
the celebration. Special recognition will be given to women
business owners in the area, local women's networking groups and
resources designed to support women in entrepreneurship.
Lyn Wineman, president of KidGlov and a 30-year marketing
veteran, will share insights on business ownership. Coffee and
light refreshments will be served at 10 a.m. on the third floor of
the SCC Entrepreneurship Center.
Since 2006, SCC has been an active participating member of
NACCE, in particular, during the organization's national
conferences which draw nearly 500 attendees annually. In 2011, Dr.
Jack Huck, president of SCC at the time, was honored by NACCE as
the Entrepreneurial President of the Year during the Ninth Annual
Conference in Portland, Ore. Three-hundred community colleges
belong to NACCE, the only organization solely focused on advancing
entrepreneurship in the two-year college arena.
The SCC Entrepreneurship Center is a full-service resource hub
for entrepreneurs in all stages of business development, from idea
