Florida International University students, alumni and local residents will soon have th chance to learn business tips directly from professionals, thanks to a new partnership between FIU and SCORE Miami Dade.
FIU”s Pino Global Entrepreneurship Center joined forces with the local chapter of SCORE-a national organization of business retired professionals – in May and began developing programs to help local individuals start or grow businesses. Several events are now planned for the Entrepreneurship Empowerment Series, which runs from September 12 to November 28.
SCORE is doing more than just the workshops, however. In addition to the one-on-one mentoring, it will provide access to capital through its strong relationships with local banks, help FIU students secure internships and jobs with SCORE professionals and work with FIU to write grants for joint venture programs.
