Howard Community College Hosts Spring Entrepreneurial Celebration May 17

May 7, 2012

(Columbia, MD) – Howard Community College (HCC) and its Center for Entrepreneurial and Business Excellence (CEBE) invites the public to attend the spring “Entrepreneurial Celebration” on Thursday, May 17, 2012 on the fourth floor of the college’s Rouse Company Foundation Student Services Hall (RCF-400). A networking reception begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by the “Rocket Marketing” competition at 6 p.m., where HCC students pitch their new business ideas within three minutes to a juried panel. Both events are free and light refreshments will be served. Past events have drawn a large crowd from the government and business community, so reservations are recommended by emailing

The CEBE supports students and community members with their small business dreams and development by offering a strategic blend of applied coursework, work experience, and ongoing coaching.  For additional information, visit or contact Betty Noble at or 443-518-4111.
