Broward/Palm Beach, Fla. – The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship in Florida State University’s College of Business is accepting applications for its Fall 2022 Small Business Executive Program (SBEP) and Nonprofit Executive Program (NPEP) held in Palm Beach and Broward counties.

Offered at no cost to participants, the programs are funded by The Jim Moran Foundation and Jan Moran and her late husband, automotive pioneer Jim Moran. The application deadline is Thursday, March 31.

The SBEP and NPEP are designed for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, presidents and executive directors of small businesses and nonprofit organizations.

Graduates emerge with the skills and training needed to turn challenges into strategic advantage, capitalize on business opportunities and implement best practice management.

Participants represent a variety of industries. “By participating in this program, you will gain incredible insight, excellent peers, and have access to an extremely professional staff – all of which will have an immediate and lasting positive effect on your personal and business growth,” said Dhaima Lindo, CEO & Broker of Zenith Realty Group and a SBEP graduate.

The SBEP and NPEP consist of nine sessions, each focusing on a specific aspect of growing and managing a business or nonprofit organization. Starting in July and running through November, the sessions are held once every two weeks from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.


Applicants must be actively involved in running their business, be the key decision-maker, their company must have been established for at least three years, and have three or more employees (or volunteers if the company is a nonprofit).

The SBEP will be offered in both Palm Beach and Broward counties, while the NPEP will be offered in Palm Beach County for Fall 2022.
