New program captures local residents’ journeys toward business ownership

CPCC TV is excited to announce that it has added a new program – “Great Ideas” – to its prime time schedule. The first episode of “Great Ideas” will air on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 9 p.m. on Time Warner Cable Channel 17 and AT&T U-verse 99, and will help aspiring Mecklenburg County entrepreneurs or small business owners take their “great idea” from a fledgling concept to a flourishing business enterprise in the real world.

Hosted by Sherese Duncan, an instructor and counselor for CPCC’s Institute for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Center, the program captures local residents’ journeys toward business ownership.

Each episode of “Great Ideas” will feature the success stories of two aspiring entrepreneurs, giving viewers the opportunity to glean techniques and tactics that may be applicable to their future business model and/or learn what resources are available to help them achieve their professional goals. Episodes will be re-broadcast nightly each week at 9 p.m. on Time Warner Cable Channel 17 and AT&T U-verse 99 and are also available at youtube.com/cpcctv.

"CPCC TV is excited about bringing its 10th locally-produced feature show to the Charlotte television market,” said David Rhew, Broadcast General Manager for CPCC TV. “We believe the station's focus on entrepreneurship is both timely and relevant."

“Great Ideas” joins CPCC TV’s already extraordinary lineup of prime time, educational programming, which includes “Spotlight on Success,” “Charlotte Cooks™,” “Trail of History,” “Alumni Success,” “Inside Jobs,” “Perfiles Latinos” (Latino Profiles of Charlotte), “Charlotte Arts,” “Charlotte, a City of International Success” and “CPCC Snapshot.”
