PROJECT M.O.S.T COOP: AN ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRAINING MODEL
Project M.O.S.T. introduced a very innovative and robust entrepreneurship training program for its students. Many of the students in the program expressed concern about not being able to find employment and it was suggested that for many, entrepreneurship may be a good option. Consequently, we sought to identify a training provider that would be able to deliver a dynamic, compact training module that would provide the basics for entrepreneurship as well as give a practical and realistic picture of what is involved in this undertaking. The training provider selected was Elevate Entrepreneurship Systems based in Little Rock, AR.
Approximately 40 men signed up to participate in the training program as part of the Project M.OS.T. Summer Leadership Initiative. The Elevate staff identified the participants who had similar business interests and encouraged them to form six groups. These groups lead to the formation of the Project M.O.S.T. COOP. The training culminated with the Business Plan Competition held at the University of Memphis’ Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
