BVU Lamberti Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, IAMNCC
 
 
 
The Lamberti Center for Rural Entrepreneurship at BVU believes that the potential to create a prosperous community lies within the power to cultivate economic growth. The Lamberti Center for Rural Entrepreneurship strives to serve as the catalyst to revitalize our rural communities. Through the Center, new businesses and non-profits will launch, jobs will be created, individuals will be empowered to define their future, and the ethical business leaders of tomorrow will be educated. The Center’s applied programming teaches the skills to build a prosperous future for students and their communities. The Center’s idea incubator, called The Foundry, supports local businesses and entrepreneurs by providing the training and resources for success and prosperity. Our goal is to help rural America not only survive but thrive. The VISTA member will implement an operational plan to recruit potential entrepreneurs and target businesses and non-profits to promote a University to business development strategy in Storm Lake Iowa and the Northwest Iowa Region. Our mission includes providing resources for Latino and African immigrant entrepreneurs creating start-up companies that can generate new “above minimum wage” jobs and training in Storm Lake, Iowa. The goal is to provide opportunities for development for entrepreneurs to get individuals out of poverty and running successful businesses. This project is part of the Community Corps VISTA Program, operated by Iowa & Minnesota Campus Compact. The program strives to eliminate poverty through campus-community partnerships by placing full-time capacity building support in nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions. ***Please also send cover letter and resume to supervisor. Interviews will occur on a rolling basis. Preference given to candidates who apply early.***
