Every Monday we publish a weekly report to CSUF Entrepreneurship Insiders. In today’s report we announce the launch our Spring 2017 client recruitment efforts. The CSUF Consulting program is an integral part of the education of our students because it enables them to put into action the lessons they have learned with real businesses. The CSUF Consulting program is also of huge benefit to companies that participate because they receive innovative strategies on ways to make their businesses’ stronger from the reports our students create.
If you are interested in becoming a client of the CSUF Consulting program please get in touch with our Client Project Specialist, Charlesetta Medina, at (657) 278-8243.
What follows is the weekly CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider report from CSUF Center for Entrepreneurship and CSUF Startup Incubator Director John Bradley Jackson.
Every semester we welcome a diverse group of businesses into the CSUF Consulting program and we are now accepting applications for the Spring 2017 semester. For a relatively small fee, these businesses, our clients, have the opportunity to work with a student team over the course of the semester to develop a comprehensive action plan that tackles a specific part of their business.
All businesses can benefit from a fresh perspective and that is exactly what our student teams provide. Armed with the latest business knowledge from multiple disciplines and the creativity that is evident in so many of our students the CSUF Consulting program has helped all kinds of businesses ranging from startups to Hilton Hotels.
The Hilton Hotels project is one that I am particularly proud of. When clients initially contact us, many of them automatically think that marketing projects have the highest ROI, which isn’t always the case. Our team that worked with Hilton Hotels made this abundantly clear by developing a comprehensive energy sustainability plan that has saved the hotel a lot of money.
And that story has been repeated many times over the years with our teams developing plans to help clients in a wide range of areas. I’m sure every business can improve and that one of our teams can help accomplish that goal.
While we are completing current client engagements from the Fall Semester, the Center for Entrepreneurship looks forward to working with the students, clients, mentors, and professors next semester. We have a very strong community full of innovative people and I am confident that we will help make many more businesses stronger next semester and for years to come!
If you are interested in becoming a client of this program please contact Client Project Specialist, Charlesetta Medina, at (657) 278-8243 and she can walk you through the process in more detail. We look forward to working with you!
