Southeast Community College’s Entrepreneurship Center is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

For the last decade, the Entrepreneurship Center has helped a number of people develop their businesses from an idea to a success story. The full-service hub offers everything from office space, coaching, educational opportunities, and more.

“During the past 10 years, the SCC Entrepreneurship Center has helped hundreds of people in southeast Nebraska achieve their dreams of business ownership,” said Steve Bors, director. “We average nearly 1,300 coaching meetings a year with existing and potential entrepreneurs. We also host free workshops and networking events for prospective business owners.”

A special anniversary party was held on November 3 to commemorate the event. Two successful incubator alumni were presented with awards. Tim Mittan, the founding director of the Entrepreneurship Center, presented the awards to Steve Maly of Maly Marketing and Piyush Srivastav of NAQS Environmental Specialists.

Srivastav started NAQS Environmental Experts in Lincoln. It provides environmental consulting services to clients. Maly is the founder and chief activist of Maly Marketing in Lincoln. His firm helps clients with digital, strategic and print marketing solutions.

“It was an amazing honor,” said Maly. “The lessons that I learned through everyone at the Entrepreneurship Center still guides me today and I credit it for the growth that we have had over the past three years.”
