Building an Entrepreneurial Infrastructure: A Community Workshop

Speakers: Maria Meyers, University of Missouri-Kansas City Innovation Center



Join us as guest speaker, Maria MeyersVice Provost and Executive Director at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Innovation Center, shares her insights.

Entrepreneurship matters. Resilient communities understand the role entrepreneurs play in economic health and vitality. The best time to build a collaborative, inclusive network of resources to support people who want to start and grow companies is before disaster strikes or as a response to chronic challenges. Entrepreneurs who grow in place are more likely to “stick” in the community, creating jobs and economic wealth. Universities can play a unique role in facilitating the development of an entrepreneurial infrastructure in communities large and small.
