A group of 15 college students and staff members from Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, were recently hosted by the Prosperity Success Institute based in Gold Canyon, Arizona, at its School of Entrepreneurial studies. They were part of an intense and focused seven-day business start-up course known as ECIP – the Entrepreneur Candidate Initiative Program.
Through the joint effort of the Prosperity Success Institute, the Grace College School of Business, and the Gordon Institute for Enterprise Development, this course was able to offer students real life experiences in owning a business enterprise. It focused on sales and marketing, finance, communications, operations, negotiating, as well as building a unique and detailed customized business plan. The students each received three credit hours for this highly-sought accredited course.
Larry Snow and his wife Kim Overmyer, the founders of the institute and business owners of 35 years, desired to give back to other prospective start-ups as a result of the prosperity success that they have been able to enjoy throughout their entrepreneurial lifetime.
This is the second year in a row that the Prosperity Success Institute has held this event for college participants and even more extensive classes are planned later for this year. It features a variety of business-building formats and one-of-a-kind instruction using the very latest in technology tools. It further includes guest business speakers from throughout the Phoenix area that offer key business-building strategies.
The students were also able to enjoy a real west experience as they took time off to visit the OK Corral and spend an afternoon on horseback on a tour through the Superstition Mountains. The participants were also hosted by the Arizona Grace College Alumni at a reception held for them at Bethany Church in Glendale, Arizona. As they have returned to the Grace College campus, they will work to finalize their college experience and use their newly-formed business plan and entrepreneurial education to create their own personal business enterprise in the future.
