"In every success story, you will find someone who has made a courageous decision."
-- Peter F. Drucker
I have been involved with the SEA for 17 years. I am always inspired by the energy of the SEA community, which includes a team of local entrepreneurs, community supporters, current fellows, and alumnae of the program.
I am energized as I witness the personal growth of the fellows as they go through the program, and in seeing them apply the knowledge they gain through the academy. For over thirty years, successful SEA graduates have created value and added to the economic prosperity of the Sacramento region - and beyond. I am so happy for their success, but also very proud of the way they represent the SEA through leadership, commitment to the community, and adhering to the highest standards of ethical conduct.
Since 1985, the SEA has provided an environment encouraging budding entrepreneurs to make courageous decisions. By connecting academy fellows and regional experts, we set the stage to promote entrepreneurial success. The Academy boasts an impressive list of successful local entrepreneurs who learned their craft at the SEA. Would you like to be involved in this important Sacramento area institution?
