Ohio Pen/10065685

RALEIGH, N.C. - OhioPen -- The National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) in partnership with Intuit, maker of TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mint, is pleased to announce the acceptance of eleven institutions into the Financial Management for Entrepreneurs Curriculum Initiative Phase II. This pilot's main goal is to empower future entrepreneurs with the right financial management tools and skills required for long-term business success.

"NACCE is thrilled to expand this partnership with Intuit to an additional eleven community colleges within our member network. We look forward to celebrating the impact this curriculum will have on future and current entrepreneurs across North America," said Rebecca Corbin, NACCE president & CEO.

By 2021, we anticipate that we will be able to offer this curriculum publicly so that any instructor could easily access, understand and incorporate the modular financial management lessons in their coursework, with or without a finance background. We plan to grow a network of educators who feel comfortable and confident teaching financial management principles and tools to students from a wide variety of disciplines. Using this curriculum, future and current entrepreneurs would have a solid foundation of how to manage their business finances, but also their own personal finances.
