"Being able to work with the Entrepreneurship Center at Bridgerland has made our business possible. It's given us the opportunity to work out our formulas and recipes on a small scale, saving us time and much-needed capital. We couldn't do this without Mark and his team." - Phil 

"Without the Entrepreneurship Center, getting my business off the ground would have been met with far greater hurdles that I may have considered insurmountable had I not been afforded the Entrepreneurial Center’s resources and support. The physical resources provided to myself and my staff can’t be understated, and most important to a young entrepreneur like myself, the business support resources available were always just an email, phone call, or office visit away. The staff were easy to work with and courteous and the facilities were first-rate. It will be bittersweet when I have grown my business enough to depart the wonderful support from the Entrepreneurial Center". - Jon

“I've owned and operated two different small businesses over 20 years. At various times, I sought out assistance from various public funded offices. They are generally staffed by people with no business ownership experience and their advice rarely goes deeper than a business plan. A business consultant with only a college degree is no substitute for the breadth of skills that a small business owner must master. Similarly, institutional employees rarely face the emotional wringer that small business people repeatedly encounter.
The Bridgerland Entrepreneurship Center, led by Mark Alexander, is the one exception to my interaction with business support offices. Mark not only has small business experience, but has owned several small manufacturing businesses. (Design and manufacturing businesses deal with much different problems than retail.) His background has proven to be exceptionally valuable as my company has faced critical decisions.” - Eugene

“The BEC has been immensely helpful as I navigate the struggles of starting and running a small business. Their business specific one on one counseling, helpful classes, and rental of the incubator kitchen have provided expertise and physical resources that I could not have afforded otherwise. Commercial space is expensive and as a start up, the kitchen provided an inexpensive way to produce products without crushing overhead. It is also easy to schedule and use. I really appreciate the support.” - Laura

“Over the past year, the Entrepreneurship Center at Bridgerland Technical College, and the Commercial Kitchen specifically, has been a wonderful experience. For anyone who is still on the fence about starting up their idea, I would highly recommend this team. No matter the challenge for your business, they have an answer, or know someone who does. They helped us get licensing for manufacturing a food product, and countless other little things and advice that has made all the difference. So if you have an idea, and you are looking for a mentor/coach, I would start here. It is time for your idea to leave the shower, and hit the mainstream, and hopefully take the world by storm.” - Clark

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the BEC. Mark has a ton of knowledge and does a great job at helping people get the tools they need to grow their business. He has been a great guide in helping me to find key people to help me with my business questions too. If you are new to business and want to tap into a great resource, the name says it all.” -Rob
