Regional Food Systems: Driving Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (Webinar)

Join this free Connecting Communities® webinar to explore using regional food system investments to drive entrepreneurial activity and small business development. Speakers will discuss technical support that can be provided to entrepreneurs, as well as creative tools for financing regional food enterprises. The webinar will draw on research in a new book, Harvesting Opportunity. The speakers are all contributors to the publication; they will highlight how organizations are working to ensure that the opportunities created through regional food investments are available to all, including traditionally marginalized populations.

Presenters include:
