You are cordially invited to attend the 2014 Urban Entrepreneurship Symposium. Join us as representatives from business, education, government, and communities gather to explore ways to apply entrepreneurship to benefit urban communities.
Key topics at the seminar will include:
- Proven methods for engaging urban communities to determine needs, and for translating those needs into products and services
- Vivid examples of sustainable, scalable, and disruptive businesses that are solving important urban problems
- Student-led business ideas that show promise for changing the urban social and economic landscape.
- Strategic, legal, and financial support systems needed to ensure the success of urban entrepreneurs.
The morning keynote speaker is Dr. Jeffrey Robinson from the Rutgers University Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CUEED), a leading figure in the urban entrepreneurship movement. The luncheon will feature a talk by Jill Ford, special assistant to the mayor of Detroit for entrepreneurship initiatives.
