Sedona AZ (September 26, 2013) – On October 9, 2013 at a breakfast meeting from 7:30 – 10:30 am at the Hilton Sedona Resort & Spa, 90 Ridge Trail Drive, Sedona, AZ 86351, the Verde Valley Regional Economic Organization is hosting our annual speaker series featuring two dynamic, nationally-renowned speakers: Jack Schultz and Craig Lindvahl.
Jack and Craig will show how communities are making the connection to millennials in remarkable ways, and help us discover what our millennials can mean to the Verde Valley’s future. Millennial Entrepreneurs, young people under the age of 29, are transforming communities. Towns that know how to inspire, instruct, and assist these young entrepreneurs are going to find their futures much brighter. There is a profound paradigm shift taking place in rural America, where economic developers are spending less time recruiting new business and instead channeling recruitment resources into new business development (economic gardening). There are huge advantages in this approach-local entrepreneurs put down much deeper roots than those recruited into the community.
The cost for the event is $35 per person. Please register in advance to ensure sufficient food. Registration and speaker biographies are available online at VVREO.com.
VVREO appreciates the sponsorship of APS, Cottonwood Economic Development, Corporation, Out of Africa Wildlife Park, Sedona Chamber of Commerce, SRP, Verde River Adventure Center, Yavapai College, and others who make this program possible.
