In a partnership between the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center and the Business, Entrepreneurship & Management Meta Major at Skyline College, business students are being referred to access services offered by the BAEC.
After and an in-class presentation by BAEC Director, Pcyeta Stroud and referrals from Business Professor, Soledad McCarthy, a number of students have stopped by the Center to sign up for coaching, co-working and other offerings. Radu Skutaru, an international student from Russia, and business major, was one of those students.
Radu had a very informative conversation with a BAEC coach regarding his business aspirations and next steps. He learned that the Center offers one-on-one business coaching, social media marketing workshops, networking events and space for him to brainstorm ideas, bounce them off others or work independently, all at no cost to him. In response to learning about these resources the student said, “I can’t believe this is real!”.
