2024 Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities Conference

Wisconsin’s FIRST Connecting Entrepreneurial Conference brings together economic development professionals, local decision makers, and community champions to learn new strategies to promote entrepreneurship in their small towns. Not a typical conference, CEC will tour attendees around Platteville to explore the Driftless Region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. Local businesses will host panels and presentations, and conference attendees can check out the local food scene, visit key community sites, and network with fellow leaders in rural development.
