Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities Conference

Here is an important announcement from MSU:

Upcoming “Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities” Conference for volunteers, businesses, community, education and government partners and all important contacts you might work with.  The conference will be held in beautiful downtown Petoskey, on October 9th just in time for the peak fall colors!

This conference is an excellent professional development and networking opportunity for those who want to learn more about entrepreneurship and community development. Another great benefit of this conference will be the chance to interact and build stronger collaborations with our colleagues from the Greening Michigan Institute.

As change agents, this conference is ideal for local teams of people interested in entrepreneurship and developing community economic success. In addition to keynote speakers, there will be over 20 breakout sessions on a wide-range of topics, such as developing a youth business expo, resources for teaching youth entrepreneurship, cultivating cultural entrepreneurs, capitalizing on the local foods movement, food as a destination--culinary entrepreneurs, converting to green collar entrepreneurs and so much more!!! Our goal is to have 100 communities and community teams participate. Consider bringing a local team and joining us on October 9th  in advancing and sustaining our community’s prosperity, here in “Pure Michigan.” 

Conference registration forms will be released soon!!
