University of Minnesota Crookston Sparks Entrepreneurial Flame

Posted: Updated:

  UMC is working to spark the flame of its entrepreneurial students on these cold winter days.

  It's Entrepreneurship Major helps students like Jason Kulyk bring their business ideas to life. Kulyk is currently working on a study to power the entire UMC campus.

Jason Kulyk, UMC Student: "Trying to get wind and solar feasibility studies done. Solar's done… going to start on wind here in a little bit."

Reporter: "To provide power for UMC?"

Kulyk: "Yeah, so we can become a carbon neutral campus."

  Susan Broson, the Director of program says, students do an internship with a regional business as part of their training. She says it's also a great way for existing and startup businesses owners  to get their own training… on things like promoting their business with social media.

Susan Broson, UMC Business Dept.: "I think it's exciting. I think it's great for the region, because we're always concerned about what is going on in the region and helping sustain our regional economy."

Kevin Cooper, Instructor: "To sort of bring an additional level of economic resilience to our area."

  So, now not only students, but regional business owners as well have access to a new program that's designed to help grow existing and startup businesses.

  If you're a business owner looking for an intern or if you'd like an online education in entrepreneurship, here's link to much more information.
