Recently the Duncanville City Council included an agenda item for discussion to take a look at the future of the EON Reality Entrepreneur School after the graduation of its first class.
Staff had requested Cliff Boyd give the presentation about upcoming developments as Boyd is the EON Reality Entrepreneur School Advisory Committee representative for the City Council.
It was on October 24, 2014 that the City of Duncanville and EON Reality entered into an agreement for the creation and management of the Entrepreneur School within the city.
Boyd said the school has been holding classes for one year and the first class just graduated with seven students completing the program.
“Four of the seven were extended offers to work for EON in Duncanville,” Boyd acknowledged via email. “We need to continue to make the opportunity more visible to the public.”
Boyd said that this year there were 80 applicants for the 20 slots available at the school.
“The EON Corporation is very pleased with the first year and happy with high quality applicants for the next class,” Boyd explained. “New clients working with the center include Parkland and UTSW.”
Boyd said too that diabetes education is an area that has also shown much interest by the medical community.
“Graduates receive a certificate of certification in Virtual Reality software development,” he explained. “Our efforts to bring EON to Duncanville should be viewed as planting seeds for future growth of economic development, retaining higher skilled labor resources and high tech support for businesses in the Best Southwest Cities.”
