The SBCC Scheinfeld Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation has teamed up with the Santa Barbara Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners to launch the first annual Scheinfeld Center New Venture Challenge.
From 2 to 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 13, the Scheinfeld Center will host the two-tiered business plan competition for SBCC students and area high school students to promote youth entrepreneurship. The competition serves as a capstone experience to the community college students in entrepreneurship and career technical studies and as a capstone offering to the high school students participating in the Virtual Enterprise programs run by the Santa Barbara County Education Office Regional Occupational Program and other organizations.
“SBCC is pleased to partner with NAWBO on this exciting new project,” SBCC Superintendent/President Andreea Serban said. “The college and the business community are pulling together to offer these deserving entrepreneurial students of all ages a chance for a step up in realizing their career dreams.”
