Since 2008 the Black Hills State University Center for Business Entrepreneurship and Tourism (CBET) has provided the knowledge, support, and networking that students and members of the community need in order to start or grown their businesses.
Whether you have already started your own business, or it is just an idea itching in the back of your head, the Center for Business, Entrepreneurship, and Tourism (CBET) has resources for you. We can help guide your understanding of what it takes to be an entrepreneur, the mindset necessary for success, and whether this is the journey for you.
We continue the legacy of research to the South Dakota community by providing reliable business and tourism research. We provide access to existing databases of industry research, and offer assistance in the collection of information specific to your business. Our faculty experts can provide training and support with regard to conducting your own industry analysis, identifying your market and customer needs, understanding your financing options, making realistic forecasts, and putting it all together into your business plan.
