The Kentucky Equitable Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Workshop
September 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
If you’ve ever wondered how a small, struggling community has turned things around and brought their downtown back to life – this is your chance to find out. It all starts with the people and resources you already have!
If your community is expanding and you want to make sure you have a strong foundation for growth that includes and creates opportunities for everyone – we’ll focus on that, too!
The EEE workshop is a free educational opportunity for any rural community in Kentucky. The workshop will focus on Entrepreneurship and Mindset, Equitable Ecosystems, Ecosystem Building Blocks and Support, and Preparing for the Ecosystem Building process. We’ll cover several tools and templates for you to better assess your community’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, its assets and gaps, the role that your Main Street and partner organizations play, along with targeted next steps to map out and utilize your ecosystem. You’ll leave with the tools and understanding of how to put the pieces of your ecosystem together equitably and with entrepreneurs in mind.
