TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship’s North Florida Operations held an opening ceremony at Florida State University’s Alumni Center Wednesday evening to celebrate the opening of its sixth Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) class in Tallahassee.
“We are thrilled to begin training our new group of CEOs and small business owners,” said Mike Campbell, director of the Jim Moran Institute’s North Florida Operations, which is housed in the FSU College of Business. “The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship has now trained more than 120 business owners in Tallahassee on how to work on their businesses, and we look forward to providing the same opportunity to many more.”
The four-month program will begin this evening and run through April 19. The SBEP was designed with for-profit businesses in mind and created to be a world-class learning experience that accommodates the busy schedule of small business owners. Business owners using the Business Model Canvas, a global standard used by millions of people in companies of all sizes, emerge as stronger leaders, ready to capitalize on business opportunities, Campbell says.
The SBEP helps its participants to assess their company's position, develop long-term strategies, and connects fellow business owners and members of the Jim Moran Institute’s network for advice and support. Applications for the next class will be available in May.

About the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship
The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship cultivates, trains and inspires entrepreneurial leaders through world-class executive education, applied training, public recognition and leading-edge research.
Jim Moran was an automotive pioneer and an entrepreneur at heart, who at the age of seven, sold soda pop at sandlot baseball diamonds in Chicago. With a career that spanned more than six decades, he built an amazing chronicle of achievements in the automobile industry.
His vision for the Jim Moran Institute was to provide opportunities that would help others become more successful business owners. A 1995 contribution from Jim and Jan Moran and JM Family Enterprises established the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship at the Florida State University College of Business. Since 2011, further enhancements to the Jim Moran Institute and its outreach have been made possible by Jan Moran and The Jim Moran Foundation.
