WACO, Texas-Baylor University's John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship is looking for Central Texas companies who would like free management assistance.

The center's Venture Assistance Program matches teams of MBA students and senior-level entrepreneurship majors with local companies who would like help with strategic or business planning, marketing or advertising, or managerial issues.

"Working with a faculty supervisor, the team members become personal business consultants," said Dr. Nancy Upton, director of the Baugh Center. "They examine the needs of the business with an objective outsider's eye and offer a fresh perspective based on up-to-date knowledge of current business techniques."

The Venture Assistance Program has been helping Central Texas businesses since 1979. Associated with the Small Business Administration, the program is free to businesses in the community. "The Venture Assistance Program can help make businesses more productive and more profitable," Upton said.
