Ecosystem for businesses
If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, start here to discover the many resources available to help you succeed! Through a grant received from the Appalachian Regional Commission, Garrett College developed the entrepreneurship ecosystem map to provides critical information as you explore the risks and rewards of small business ownership. Navigate through all six sections of the map below for expanded detail, and follow the links to additional resources. As you explore, you will notice links to our Power Of Possibilities Entrepreneurship Training course. Each year, individuals enrolling in the program compete for start-up funds in our business competition. Winners of the competition are announced at the Power Of Possibilities conference, which occurs each Spring. For more information on the class, please visit Garrett College’s Entrepreneurship Course
