Women Entrepreneur

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 to growth and expansion. Business coaching, business planning assistance, funding preparation assistance, business incubation, and entrepreneurial educational opportunities are included in services offered to Lincoln and the surrounding 15 counties. The Center is home to several resource organizations, including the Nebraska Business Development Center Lincoln office and Procurement Technical Assistance Center.
