One Entrepreneur at a Time

Today, we heard from Amy Sibiga, a recent graduate from the California Program for Entrepreneurship , offered annually at Santa Clara University’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Amy introduced her own company, Megan’s Living Well, and a few others that have stemmed from her recently-completed program.

Megan’s Living Well provides services and support for individuals living with chronic disease or pain, primarily through a series of motivational cards with support ideas and resources.

Amy presented components of the business plan that she completed during the course, and shared that her plan has since won an additional award from the Monterey Bay Regional Business Plan Competition, which she won in May.

Building on the success of nearly 20 new business enterprises in last year’s California Program for Entrepreneurship (CAPE), the next fully subsidized six-month entrepreneurship program begins this month at the Leavey School of Business.

Thirty California-based companies were selected to participate in a series of classes, workshops, mentorships and networking led by Santa Clara business faculty and augmented by the School’s unique connections with Silicon Valley. Selection is based on the following criteria: a well-developed business idea (or business in startup mode), guided by experienced leaders, and with a high potential to make economic contributions within a year of completing the program.

Miskulin Scholarship Awarded to Del Mar Senior

The Rotary Club of Campbell is pleased to announce the recipient of this years’ George F. Miskulin Scholarship. The annual scholarship is named in honor of former Rotary member George Miskulin, the first principal at Del Mar High School when it opened in 1959. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has shown dedication to making their school and community a better place through volunteerism.

This year the scholarship will be presented to Ms. Janine Sato at the Senior Awards Night on Tuesday, May 31st. Ms. Sato’s involvement in the school’s Leadership and service club has certainly contributed to the school and the surrounding community. Along with her volunteer activities Janine maintained a 4.0 grade point average through her 4 years at Del Mar. She aspires to become a Web Designer, hopefully at Google.
