Funding secured for UNI Entrepreneurship program

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -- Funding could be on the way for an entrepreneurship program at the University of Northern Iowa.

Senator Tom Harkin announced Wednesday $250,000 is in the works for the Myentre.net program.  The funding is included in the fiscal year 2010 appropriations bill, which is expected to be approved in committee Thursday, before heading to the senate.

Myentre.net is like a Facebook for small businesses, connecting entrepreneurs throughout eastern Iowa, particularily in rural areas.
