SOM Promotes Entrepreneurial Success

Nazareth College’s School of Management has teamed up with Monroe Community College to present Pathways to Entrepreneurial Success.

Pathways to Entrepreneurial Success was created by experienced entrepreneurs and college educators, Jeffrey Shepard, Bob Spinelli, and Sherry Tshibangu, who observed that Rochester's displaced workers and many of their students were curious about starting a business, concerned about the continued success of their parents' businesses, and considering new business opportunities outside of Rochester and Western New York. Pathways to Entrepreneurial Success encourages regional representatives to communicate, share information about their unique programs, and connect entrepreneurs with available resources to help start or grow a business. The program also prepares students for professional success with higher education and networking opportunities.

While Monroe Community College is hosting the event, the academic sponsors of Nazareth College’s School of Management, Medaille College, Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester Institute of Technology, St. John Fisher College’s Bittner School of Business, and the University of Rochester have helped, along with community and business sponsors such as City of Rochester, NY Robert J. Duffy; Mayor, Maggie Brooks County Executive, Marshall & Sterling Insurance, SCORE, and Woods Oviatt Gilman LLP.

Founded in 1924, Nazareth College is located on a close-knit, suburban campus in the dynamic, metropolitan region of Rochester, N.Y. The College offers challenging academic programs in the liberal arts and sciences and professional programs in health and human services, education, and management. Nazareth's strong cultures of service and community prepare students to be successful professionals and engaged citizens. The College enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students.
