Ohio University-Zanesville offers entrepreneurship class

ATHENS, Ohio (Jan. 19, 2006) -- Ohio University-Zanesville is offering a business course entitled "Entrepreneurship - Starting and Growing a Business." Larry Triplett, president of Resource Systems in New Concord, will be the instructor.

The course is designed to complement the Muskingum County Business Incubator. Exposing students to the possibilities of entrepreneurship can help the incubator identify potential clients and help the community improve the local climate for start-up enterprises.

Participants in the class will learn what it takes to launch and grow an entrepreneurial business. Students will engage their own creativity and business acumen while discovering the intricacies of an entrepreneurial environment. Students will gain insight regarding the importance of strategic planning, working with limited resources, creativity, concentrating on efficiency and the value of ongoing professional development.

Throughout the course students will develop a business plan either for a real business opportunity they may have considered starting or a fictitious business idea. Students will finish the class with a finalized business plan.

Those interested in learning about various types of businesses and the characteristics that make them entrepreneurial vs. non entrepreneurial should call Cindy Oliver at (740) 588-1400 or oliverc@ohio.edu to register for the for-credit course, which will be held Feb. 4 and 25 on the Zanesville campus.
