- [00:00:05.970]A focus on franchising is back at the University
- [00:00:09.583]of Nebraska–Lincoln with help from local and
- [00:00:12.902]global franchise partners.
- [00:00:14.820]We're launching new franchising classes, starting
- [00:00:18.181]a student organization and expanding the Center
- [00:00:21.408]for Entrepreneurship's resources for Nebraska's
- [00:00:24.635]franchise community.
- [00:00:25.980]Franchising is often misunderstood, which prevents
- [00:00:29.733]people from pursuing it.
- [00:00:31.500]Franchisors offer the chance to buy into a
- [00:00:34.668]business under an established business model, and trademark.
- [00:00:39.090]Our goal is to support young entrepreneurs by
- [00:00:42.381]helping them to start something, grow something
- [00:00:45.816]and learn about franchising.
- [00:00:47.820]Open to students of any major, the new franchising
- [00:00:51.708]classes will show how franchising is wildly
- [00:00:55.062]successful and accessible to everyone.
- [00:00:57.960]After all, it's the only way to be in business for
- [00:01:02.021]yourself, but not by yourself.
- [00:01:04.410]Those interested will join more than 1300 students
- [00:01:08.664]taking entrepreneurship classes each year at Nebraska.
- [00:01:13.170]Some of those students already own a business.
- [00:01:16.320]Others have a dream of being a business owner but
- [00:01:19.570]don't have a clear path yet.
- [00:01:21.390]We'll connect these students with mentors and internships.
- [00:01:26.070]At meetings of our new franchise club, students
- [00:01:29.544]connect with a wide range of alumni and friends
- [00:01:33.019]within the franchise industry, both locally and nationally.
- [00:01:37.290]Franchising success depends upon multiple
- [00:01:40.142]stakeholders within a network.
- [00:01:42.180]So we're doing the same thing at Nebraska.
- [00:01:45.450]By collaborating with UNO and UNK, students
- [00:01:49.208]interested in franchising at all three campuses
- [00:01:53.308]have access to classes and to the club.
- [00:01:56.640]We look forward to expanding this program and hope
- [00:01:59.720]that you will join us.
