The Flint Area Investment Office and economic catalyst Prima Civitas will host an in-depth, 3-day workshop for business and economic developers on June 1-3 in Flint at the MTA Auditorium.

Workshop presenter Ernesto Sirolli has trained economic developers in communities of all sizes.  His “Trinity of Management” method shows local officials, and business and economic developers, how to harness the power of local entrepreneurs to bring sustainable change through “entrepreneur facilitation.” 

Attendees will learn to:

  • Recognize and define popular myths about business development
  • Identify key concepts for making their communities entrepreneur-friendly
  • Write an entrepreneurial-based economic development plan for their communities
