You want business success. Employees want employers. Your community wants growing companies that can deliver future growth, jobs, profits and wealth. It all comes together in entrepreneurship to create the jobs of tomorrow that can service both local and distant customers.
Learn the best practices that growth companies and their coaches and leaders are using to create opportunity. Come to North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) in Mason City, Iowa June 24-26 to learn the roadmap to entrepreneurial success from the national experts. NIACC’s John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center is hosting the Midwest Educators Forum on Entrepreneurship, underwritten by a federal grant. To see these same speakers in San Francisco, Denver or Boston would cost thousands of dollars in registration fees and travel expenses. Be inspired and equipped for success, right here in Iowa for $175 – essentially the cost of the meals.

These tools are not limited to startups. They work equally well for existing companies seeking rejuvenation or to add new business lines. Even big corporations like John Deere are switching to these practices from the historic business case and business plan methodologies. Why? They work. The National Science Foundation (NSF) switched too and the rate of success of startups funded by NSF technology transfer grants increased by a factor of four.
Just one example of the truly powerful speakers at MEFE:
Diana Kander is a successful entrepreneur and a Senior Fellow at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, a leading underwriter of innovation in entrepreneurial support and development. Most recently Ms. Kander is the author of All in Startup, a book that gives a case study of real world best practices for business startups illustrated by a highly engaging fictional cast of characters. It’s the novel everyone considering a startup should read.
You have to be there, June 24-26, 2015. Don’t miss it. MEFE. It will be your best investment in your business future all year.
