Want to start your own business or grow the one you already have?

The Center for Entrepreneurship at San Jacinto College’s Generation Park Campus in northeast Houston provides non-credit workshops and events to support community entrepreneurs and future small business owners.

The Center for Entrepreneurship offers workshops to help you build your small business.

Topics include ...

  • Developing, planning, financing, and marketing your business
  • Team building
  • Leadership coaching
  • Problem solving
  • Navigating conflict
  • Managing time
  • Much more

In late fall 2022 and early spring 2023, the resource-based center hosted seven evening workshops for its Small Business Workshop Academy. The academy’s nine students graduated during National Entrepreneurship Week in February, with a ceremony that included guest speakers Commissioner Rodney Ellis, Precinct 1, and U.S. Rep. Sylvia Garcia, 29th District.

Thanks to a generous donation from Commissioner Ellis’ Precinct 1 office, each graduate — along with National Entrepreneurship Week participants — received Chromebooks to attend a national entrepreneurship workshop. Academy graduates also enjoyed three months of free Nimble Workspace thanks to Generation Park developer McCord.

The center is currently planning its third Small Business Workshop Academy. To register or learn more, contact

“We are here for anyone interested in how to start, manage, and grow a business or in understanding the competencies of an entrepreneurial mindset,” said Sheila Simon, director of business operations, supply chain, and entrepreneurship for continuing and professional development.

The Generation Park Campus is at 13455 Lockwood Rd., Houston, TX 77044.
