Sessions will cover best practices for working with entrepreneurs to ensure their startups become viable businesses that contribute to local economies.
Industry Trends and Innovations
How we support entrepreneurs has changed in recent years as entrepreneurship has become a more mainstream approach to economic development and as technology has improved. This track will explore some of these changes, highlight current trends, and identify some of the latest tools and strategies people are using to create successful programs.
Establishing and growing a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem is widely recognized as the key to creating regional prosperity through new job growth. These sessions will explore the elements and strategies for building successful entrepreneurial ecosystems in any community.
Sector-Focused and Specialized Programming
Many entrepreneurship centers focus on specific industries, and therefore have unique challenges and opportunities. At the InBIA conference, people from these sectors have the opportunity to learn more about working within their specific industries and to connect with others doing similar work.
