Over the past several months, prospective entrepreneurs selected from the residents at
the Union Rescue Mission in downtown Los Angeles have participated in a 24-week
business training session. They learned the basic principles of financial management,
marketing, accounting, business planning, and accountability from Pepperdine faculty,
alumni, and friends.
Students from the School of Law, Graziadio School of Business and Management,
and Graduate School of Education and Psychology participated as Teaching Fellows
for the instructional component and served as coaches for the entrepreneurs for the
semester-long duration of the program. Additionally, members of the business and
legal communities served as mentors.
After many hours of training, coaching, and planning, several hard-working and
hopeful entrepreneurs have emerged with viable business plans. On April 19, these
entrepreneurs will present their business plans to members of the community and
Pepperdine University stakeholders including students, faculty, and staff. We
sincerely hope that you will be able to join us on this joyous, inspirational occasion.
To confirm attendance please contact the Palmer Center via e-mail
at Samantha.Ellis@Pepperdine.edu or by phone at (310) 506-4681. We look forward
to hearing from you and hope to see you soon.
