The Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities (CEC) Conference is a community development initiative that brings together entrepreneurs, business leaders, economic development professionals, decision makers, and community champions to strengthen and broaden regional entrepreneurial networks. Eight state University Extension teams are collaborating to offer a week-long virtual conference to be held Nov. 9-13 2020. In this first of its kind offering, the program development team is excited to offer participants an event that aims to:

  1. Serve as a space to showcase the tools and resources available to support entrepreneurs.

  2. Support entrepreneurial network development in local communities by providing participants with the opportunity to learn from each other and share best practices.

  3. Build a network of people to access multi-state tools, knowledge and resources to support entrepreneurial ecosystem development.

  4. Learn about specific tools and resources to implement in your community.

COST: $20
