The SBCC Scheinfeld Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation hosted its first Global Manufacturing for Startups Summit recently at the Fess Parker Resort.

Side by side, local entrepreneurs, students and regional community college and high school educators engaged with experts to understand the global manufacturing landscape and how to avoid the most common points where startups can stall out when trying to navigate the manufacturing process.

“We are thankful to our summit presenters for sharing their real-world expertise and mentorship,” said Julie Samson, director of the Scheinfeld Center.

“Their contributions will help our regional students, educators, and entrepreneurs become increasingly skilled and competent in navigating our global economy,” Samson said.

Those attending received business and manufacturing insights from the presenters and panelists who included manufacturing executives, educators, intellectual-property experts, and the entrepreneurs behind local success stories Fuelbox and Umbii.

Scheinfeld Center has produced three thematic summits since the 2016 launch of its Global Competence Initiative, which offers a fresh approach for helping community colleges and high schools support the development of global competence among students and educators by integrating global concepts into their curricula.

To learn more about Scheinfeld Center programs and opportunities for industry partners and mentors, subscribe to the email newsletter at www.scheinfeld.sbcc.edu or contact Samson at [email protected] or 965-0581 ext. 3643.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
