In 2016, the Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship chartered a chapter in the Society for Advancement of Management. SAM is over 100 years old and features three distinct components for students to compete in. Three students will be nominated for the Regional Student Award, which recognizes students for their contribution to the club and their involvement in community service. The chapter will also compete for the Chapter of the Year which is based on the overall operations of the chapter and community service. This year, our students have participated in feeding handicapped individuals at Gibb Mabry Village, worked at the FSU 7 under 30 presentation, sponsored two individuals from Boys Town for Christmas, and assisted with the Harley Davidson Toys for Tots Drive. FSU SAM will also be sending two teams to Orlando in March to compete in a case-competition team. Faculty member Bob Garner is serving as chapter advisor and this year 22 students are participating in the club.

“I had a spectacular experience in the FSU entrepreneurship program. I only applied to one school when I graduated high school and that was FSU specifically for the opportunity to participate in the entrepreneurship program. I started five businesses in my four years at FSU with support from the Jim Moran Institute. None of those businesses are active today, but it was the experience I learned in the process of running them that helped me graduate from FSU with my choice of jobs. I also attribute my success today to my time in the program. I’m currently traveling the world in an “intrapreneurship” role I designed at a public software company.”
