Applications Open For Tallahassee Small Business Executive Program Class XV

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, part of the Florida State University College of Business, is accepting applications for its Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) Class XV in Tallahassee. Click here to apply.

The program is funded by Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation and offered at no cost to participants. The deadline to apply is August 13, 2021. This is the final SBEP program that will be conducted in Tallahassee for the remainder of the year.

The SBEP helps for-profit business leaders work on their business while accommodating their busy schedules. Taught by industry experts, participants learn the Business Model Canvas and are given other tools to emerge as stronger leaders ready to capitalize on business opportunities. The program helps identify clear and focused strategies in marketing, exit strategy, financial analysis and more.

“We want to help small business owners work on their business, not in it,” said Mike Campbell, director of North Florida Operations at the Jim Moran Institute. “Entrepreneurs are often so focused on completing day-to-day operational tasks that they don’t take time to focus on the big picture. Our Small Business Executive Program helps them concentrate on long-term strategies that will help them grow their company.”

CEOs and small business owners operating for three years or more and with five or more employees are eligible to apply. A total of 24 participants from non-competing businesses will be accepted into the four-month program. Class sessions are held once-a-month for four hours each. The first class will take place Aug. 31, and the program runs through Nov. 9.

Dates and the structure of the programs are subject to change as the Jim Moran Institute continues to monitor the current COVID-19 guidelines from public health officials.
