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.
