Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities ConferenceAttend the Michigan State University (MSU) Extension sponsored “Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities” conference on Monday, October 9 in perfectly picturesque downtown Petoskey, Mich. to gain insight into these questions. Learn about “readiness indicators” developed by the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, which helps communities assess their ability to support entrepreneurial success.

Also learn how to develop a more “entrepreneurial” mindset – one that sees opportunity, assesses risk and takes action – as you hear simple ways to develop your aptitude and take charge of your destiny, whether you see yourself as an entrepreneur or not.

There will be more than 20 breakout sessions covering a wide-range of topics, all designed to help communities become more entrepreneurial-friendly, and will be held in various Petoskey businesses, meaning that these sessions will be held within actual downtown businesses.

 Early arrivals are welcome on Monday, Oct. 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Noggin Room at the Perry Hotel.   

 Registration is required; please visit the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce’s website. 

Fees to attend are $75 per person for the full conference. Send a group and you can save, just $65 per person for groups of three or more (a $10-per-person discount).
