Dr. Joe Forrester, Community College of Beaver County President, joins a select group of colleagues as part of National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship’s (NACCE) Presidents for Entrepreneurship Forum.

NACCE serves as "the hub for the dissemination and integration of knowledge and successful practices regarding entrepreneurship education and student business incubation.” NACCE helps community colleges link their workforce development programs with entrepreneurial development in the form of innovative programs and courses. In December, the White House hosted the first board meeting of the Startup America Partnership where NACCE, along with other organizations, became a committed partner in the Obama Administration’s prosed $2 billion in resources being dedicated to support startups.

Realizing the importance of entrepreneurship, the College began to focus on providing the community with the education and tools needed to keep businesses local and help the surrounding areas regain their value. Summer Biz Camp, sponsored by the College in a partnership with Entrepreneuring Youth (E Youth) and the Franklin Center of Beaver County, started in the summer of 2009 with the goals of introducing local youth to the thrill of entrepreneurship and providing them with the tools needed to create a business.
