Everyday Entrepreneurs Program Launch!

The entrepreneurship program at MCC is very pleased about a new amazing opportunity!

The Everyday Entrepreneur Venture Fund recently awarded Middlesex Community College a $250,000 grant to help student entrepreneurs start or grow a small business. EEVF founders Chip Weismiller and Stuart Weismiller attended a meeting of the MCC Foundation Board of Directors to formally announce the award.

The Weismillers established the million-dollar venture fund to provide seed grants to community-college foundations for community-based new business start-ups. MCC is one of four colleges in the U.S. to receive an EEVF grant. The award is the first venture-fund grant in Massachusetts to be used exclusively to launch small community-based entrepreneurs. It will be administered through the MCC Foundation.

The EEVF grant was based on MCC’s work with community-based entrepreneurs and serves as a testament to the quality and growth of the college’s Entrepreneurship Program and faculty. Grant funds are limited to current students and qualified alumni.
