Fostering an Entrepreneurial Environment in Small & Rural Communities
March 21, 2017 2:30 pm
March 3, 2017

Even in a city with many resources for entrepreneurs, the concept of self-employment can seem daunting to many people. It’s that much more difficult for aspiring entrepreneurs in small and rural communities. Many residents in these communities may have ideas, but need help during the startup process, as well as a supportive network of resources to expand and thrive. Join IEDC to understand how you can cultivate an entrepreneurial environment in your community that leads to homegrown jobs and economic growth.

Webinar speakers will show you how to:

• Introduce a culture of entrepreneurship
• Develop entrepreneurship support programs
• Incorporate lessons learned from small communities’ entrepreneurship programs
