OTTUMWA — The Regional Entrepreneurship Center (REC) operated by Indian Hills Community College continues to assist fledgling businesses grow to the point where they are able to move out into the college’s district and strengthen local economies.

The REC, located at the IHCC North Campus, is described as a “full-service training center and business incubator” and A.J. Gevock, the center’s director, emphasizes that resources are available at the facility to get budding entrepreneurs pointed in the right direction. Gevock says although the client list at the facility is full right now, he would welcome the opportunity to talk with individuals about the possibility of utilizing the center when there are open spaces in the future.

Gevock says, “Businesses can learn strategies for essentials like marketing, networking, and product research and development. They can grow at the REC and, ultimately, graduate from the incubation stage to locate in our 10-county area.”

Possibly the most important resource, according to Gevock, is access to the Small Business Development Center and the professional business advisors located on site. Those advisors are available to answer questions and give advice and guidance for no additional charge. The assistance could come in the areas of financial management, mentoring and identifying potential capital sources.
There are also training courses offered at the REC that cover a vast array of topics.

Gevock encourages anyone with an interest in “getting their idea off the ground” to contact him. Daily tours and consultations are provided.
