I have just written our report for the Coleman Foundation on our 2008 activities. It is very rewarding to see how much we have achieved in the past year and we are very excited about what the support of the Hughes Foundation will enable us to achieve this year.

Our new Coordinator for the Community Center for Entrepreneurship, Michael Obal, started three weeks ago and has already made great progress with developing our website, which now includes podcasts from last November's Global Entrepreneurship Week. We are also expanding our community datase, and organizing spring workshops on the theme of taxation, such as taxation for the new entrepreneur and taxation for the creative artist.

We are co-founders of the MassEntrepreneurship Consortium and will be attending 'A gathering of technology entrepreneurship leaders in Massachusetts' at the State House on February 10th. We are also building pathways from high school to graduate school, which includes developing a mentoring relationship with Simmons's College MBA program.

Our Entrepreneurship Degree Option and Certificate are going before our Curriculum Committee next month. We are also working on collaborative certificates, such as: Entrepreneurship for the Culinary Arts, Entrepreneurship for the Creative Artist and Entrepreneurship for Hospitality.

I look forward to giving you an update next month.

We have been very busy at the Center, and are pleased to be offering our first workshop series starting nex week. Unfortunately the formating for the flyer is 'lost in translation,' but you still see what activities are planned.

We are also meeting with high schools next week to discuss the building of a pathway between Bunker Hill and local high schools who teach the NFTE curriculum. We are very intersted in developing mentoring relationships: out E'ship students will mentor high school students.

Progress has also been made at the other end of the pathway, i.e., conversations with 4-yr schools on possible collaboration.

Our new E'ship As and Certificate programs are going through the approval process and I hope that I will be able to report next month that everything has been signed.

A very busy month regarding the development of marketing materials for the AS Entrepreneurship Option, the Certificate in Entrepreneurship, and the Community Center for Entrepreneurship (CCE).

An extension from our Coleman grant of last year allowed us to hire professionals to develop a 30 second DVD which will be used for a marketing campaign (starting in a few weeks), and a 90 second DVD which will be on BHCC's Entrepreneurship website. We are making the final edits to both; it's amazing how much footage has to be shot for a few seconds of film. The Hughes grant is contributing to the cost of the development of an Entrepreneurship brochure which will be mailed to prospective students and clients of the CCE.

Another exciting new development is the arrival of two MBA students from Simmons College who are each doing a 100 hour internship at the CCE. They will be mentoring student and other entrepreneurs, developing informational materials, working as teaching assistants with the E'ship professor, organizing events and assisting BHCC faculty with our high school outreach (including the evaluation of NFTE curriculum for BHCC college credit) . Many thanks to the Coleman Foundation for making this possible.
