Kauffman Coming to SPI

A limited amount of spots are open for the upcoming Kauffman FastTrac starting in January in South Padre Island. The NewVenture program provides tools to both develop business concepts and successfully launch a business.

To be held at the Port Isabel Events and Cultural Center as well as the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, the seven sessions encompass facilitated instruction. Students in the program identify market needs, understand business fundamentals, build a business plan, and explore risk and success factors. In addition, networking is available with entrepreneurship professionals, and participants have access to human, financial, and business resources

Sessions take place at the Port Isabel Events & Cultural Center and South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center. Application deadline is Jan. 7 with applications available online.
