Mission Statement

The Entrepreneurship Advancement Center is committed to enhancing the economic health of the communities we serve by fostering and advancing entrepreneurship interest and success.


The EAC’s programs support entrepreneurship with early education for high school students, as well as providing resources and support to entrepreneurial businesses.

Resource Center
The EAC assists people interested in starting their own businesses. We connect entrepreneurs to the information and services they need to be successful.

High School Business Plan Competition

Students are invited to develop a business plan and submit it to the competition. Competitions are held annually in January and May. These highly successful competitions have involved more than 350 local
students, over 60 entrepreneurs and business professionals, and have created 4 student-run businesses since 2009, paving the way for the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Community Business Plan Competition
This competition is open to individuals or partners interested in starting a business, as well as to existing businesses. All entries will receive detailed feedback on their business plan. Finalists will be invited to
present their plan to a panel made up of local business people and
entrepreneurs from a variety of industries. The winner will receive a
consulting package to help launch their business.

Quarterly Educational Programs
We offer education programs that support critical aspects of business plan development and business launch. Local entrepreneurs and business experts provide practical, real-world advice to participants.

Quarterly Networking Events
No one can develop a business in a vacuum. That’s why the EAC hosts networking events to support business owners in developing a network to help them grow and sustain their businesses.
