Immigrant, Inc. The Workshop: Building an Ecosystem to Help Immigrant Entrepreneurs Succeed
Friday, March 14, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
This workshop is designed to take the conversation to the next level. It is time to build a plan and a partnership to help support the next generation of Dayton's immigrant entrepreneurs!
Research demonstrates that immigrant newcomers help older industrial cities to repopulate and replenish the tax base, create new jobs, and transition to the Next Economy. Through the internationally-recognized work of Welcome Dayton, the Dayton region has cultivated a powerful community conversation on welcoming immigrants and the many gifts that they bring with them: entrepreneurialism, innovation, global connectivity, resilience and optimism.
In this workshop, facilitators Richard Herman and Todd Q. Adams will outline the competitive advantages in building ecosystems for immigrants entrepreneurs in diverse sectors such as restaurant/hospitality, landscaping/construction, software/technology, and professional services. Richard and Todd will present information and faciliate a discussion among the participants on how best to pool local resources to help immigrants suceed and grow the Dayton economy.
