Food + Small Scale Production*
August 11, 2021
11 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.

Speaker: Ilana Preuss, Recast City

Too many places are stuck in a default model of economic development strategies left over from the 80’s. People and places are being left behind. It doesn’t have to be that way. This month, you’ll learn about how we can flip the model on economic development and do it in a better way. One that invests in people and places. One that focuses on action now and not just long-term plans. You’ll be shown how to build a strong and resilient economy through concrete steps to include all types of talent in your entrepreneurship efforts, why (and how) to focus on small-scale manufacturing businesses as a catalyst and how new real estate models for main street (and downtown) can be essential to your success.
