Webinar: Small-Scale Manufacturing & Main Street: The Secret Sauce


12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.


Too many places are stuck with a set of economic development strategies left over from the 1980s. People and places are being left behind — but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Join this conversation to learn about how we can flip the model on economic development and do it a better way with an approach that invests in people and places. An approach that focuses on actions today and not just long-term plans. . .

This talk will discuss the secret sauce to build a strong and resilient economy through concrete steps that include entrepreneurship, why (and how) to focus on small-scale manufacturing businesses as a catalyst, and how new real estate models for main street can be essential to success. You have more assets at your fingertips than you think. Small-scale manufacturing businesses are hidden gems in your community. Join this training and come away with actions to move forward today!
