Jim Moran Institute Holds Closing Ceremony in Tallahassee

Oct 19, 2017

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship’s North Florida Operations held a closing ceremony at Florida State University’s Alumni Center on Tuesday to celebrate the graduation of its seventh Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) class.

“We are thrilled to commemorate another group of small business owners and CEOs who have completed SBEP training,” 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 has now trained more than 150 business owners in Tallahassee to help them think differently and be more efficient, and we look forward to providing the same opportunity to many more.”

The four-month program began in July and ran through yesterday evening. Participating businesses were represented in a variety of industries, including trade, construction, finance, food service, healthcare, education, management, and transportation. While participants were primarily based in Tallahassee, other Florida cities included Havana, Monticello and Destin.

The SBEP is 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.

Applications are now open for the next class. To learn more and apply for the next class, visit our SBEP program page at

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.
