I promised to tell you more about what the Scheinfeld Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship on the Santa Barbara City College campus has to offer. Today, I’ll cover the courses they offer and a short review of a recent guest speaker. (Click here to read Part I of this series).

Santa Barbara's Scheinfeld Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Santa Barbara's Scheinfeld Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation

Last Friday (10/22/10), Paul Orfalea, founder of Kinko’s, was the guest of honor for a conversation about starting and building your own business. Mr. Orfalea is a very candid character who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks! He shared philosophies learned from his parents and over many years building a business from a small Isla Vista storefront to a nationwide corporation.

He was rather humble about how he got his initial idea for his business, seeing students lined up at USC to have copies made. Paul figured if they needed copies at USC they probably would need copies at UCSB! In fact, that was one of his key points: pay attention, notice what is going on around you – that’s where you will find all your answers and ideas.

Part of the mission of the Schienfeld Center is to offer cutting edge educational opportunities for students interested in starting and growing their own business. Currently, they are in the middle of the fall semester offerings. The traditional type courses offered through the business department range from entrepreneurship finance, accounting and law to business and marketing plan development. Students can also register for interdisciplinary courses to learn about internet and social network marketing, electronic commerce, web design, and projects in sustainability to name just a few. Perhaps you would like to run your own business but you are not sure exactly what to do. Take Creative Thinking (GDP 118) to help you enhance your creative abilities and problem solving skills.

There are plenty of powerful and exciting courses available now and more coming as the Scheinfeld Center seems to expand each year. They are striving to meet the needs of a wide and varied audience creating businesses in diverse markets. If you are one of those people, check out their website for resources and links that can help you find information and answers; and, you never know, you just might discover some very exciting opportunities.
