JIM MORAN INSTITUTE EXTENDS APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR SMALL BUSINESS EXECUTIVE PROGRAM IN PALM BEACH COUNTY

Palm Beach, Fla. — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, in Florida State University’s College of Business, has extended the application deadline for its Spring 2022 Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) in Palm Beach County to Wednesday, October 20.

The SBEP is designed for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and presidents of small businesses. Graduates emerge with the skills and training needed to capitalize on opportunities, implement best practice management and turn challenges into strategic advantage.

Offered at no cost to participants, the SBEP consists of nine sessions, each focusing on a specific aspect of growing and managing a business. Starting in January and running through May, the sessions will be held in-person once a week from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every two weeks. While the sessions are typically held in-person, the sessions may move to an online format and/or be rescheduled to accommodate social distancing requirements.

“The biggest thing we have to learn as entrepreneurs is that we don’t know everything,” said Rigo Garcia, president and CEO of RigStar Digital Media and an SBEP graduate. “We have to keep learning, keep pivoting and keep getting better. The Jim Moran Institute is a great organization to add to your team and a wonderful resource for your entrepreneurial journey.”

Applicants must be actively involved in running a business, be a key decision-maker and their company must have been established for at least three years and have five or more employees.

Program graduates receive a certificate and have the opportunity to be a part of an ongoing peer roundtable. They are also encouraged to participate in workshops, conferences and other Jim Moran Institute events. Since 2009, the South Florida team has guided and graduated 36 classes through its executive programs.
