The New American City:
Entrepreneurship an Urban Priority
wave of innovation and opportunity is taking shape in America's inner
cities. Urban communities, once written off as economic wastelands, now
are recognized as hubs of critical business assets. The potential exists
to spark an era of sustained wealth generation from within urban neighborhoods.
Business incubators, positioned to connect community entrepreneurs with
networks and opportunities, can drive this process. NBIA's newest training
event, The New American City: Making Entrepreneurship an Urban Priority,
will show you how.
New American City will take incubation newcomers and veterans alike
through various models of dynamic urban business accelerators. Through sessions,
facilitated discussions and presentations, the conference will focus on
four distinct topics:
- Designing an Urban Incubation Program
- Reaching Out Identifying Partners and Entrepreneurs
- Understanding Minority Entrepreneurship
- Developing the Physical Community
incubators and making entrepreneurship an urban priority require the vision
of community organizations, business leaders, public officials and others
within a neighborhood.
facilitators will work with you, helping you develop a blueprint for business
incubation in your city. You'll return home with far more than notes and
handouts you'll have a step-by-step action plan for identifying
a mission, raising money, recruiting clients and finding an appropriate
as a team or as an individual. Either way, you'll leave with a real strategy
for effecting change in your community.
