Sac State center serves local entrepreneurs – and students
Sacramento State is preparing to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week, Nov. 14-18, with special classes, forums, speakers, and discussions. Meanwhile, the University’s commitment to local business startups continues all year long at our Center for Entrepreneurship.
The center, directed by Professor Seung Bach (pictured), gives budding business owners a place to work – with access to computers and other office needs – as well as professional help and assistance from Sac State business students. Further, because the College of Business Administration has many partners willing to share their experience and knowledge for free, the center often serves as a matchmaker between entrepreneurs and local experts.
Sac State students benefit from the center as well, by nurturing business startups through paid internships and other real-world activities. “Business students need clinical experience … to go out, get their hands dirty, and do something,” Bach says, calling student involvement the “No. 1 role” of the center.
