The Entrepreneur Academy is a combined effort among Alcorn State University, Natchez, Inc., and the Mississippi Development Authority. The three-month program begins April 5 at the Alcorn Technology Center, 300 Franklin St. in Natchez. There is no charge to attend, and there are no age restrictions on attendees.

“We have 24 participants now, and we can take up to 30,” said Ruth R. Nichols, assistant vice president for educational and community partnerships at Alcorn State.

Participants with creative business ideas will attend the first sessions on the afternoon of April 5 and the morning of April 6. The next session for the same participants is August 2-3.

While in training, they will learn about the best practices for starting and growing a business, and they will have access to resources and experts at the MDA and Natchez, Inc.
