YPN hosts an event to Encourage Entrepreneurial growth in Logan County
October 16, 2013, The Chamber’s Young Professionals Network of Logan County will be hosting a presentation by Jack Shultz, author of Boomtown USA, and Craig Lindvahl, founder of CEO program in Effingham, IL. The event will be held at 6:00 PM on Monday, October 21st in the Lincoln Community High School Auditorium. This event is sponsored by Integrity Data and Rolling Prairie Subdivision.
Millennial Entrepreneurs, young people under the age of 29, are quickly transforming communities. Towns that figure out how to inspire, instruct, and assist these young entrepreneurs are going to find their futures much brighter. Local entrepreneurs put down much deeper roots than those recruited into the community. It doesn’t just happen, though. There are reams of research showing we must connect with millennials to create the most positive economic future. Boomtown USA is about developing the tools to make those connections and transforming our community.
The sponsors of this event, Integrity Data and Rolling Prairie Subdivision, look at this as a great opportunity to bring two great entrepreneurial coaches to our community and to discover ways to tap the potential of our many talented young people.
The presentation will last approximately one and a half hours with a question and answer period included. Immediately following the presentation there will be a reception that will include food, drinks and a great opportunity to network with fellow attendees. Reception will be held in LCHS lobby in front of the auditorium. The reception is sponsored by: Heartland Community College Foundation, City of Lincoln, Logan County Board, and Peasley Funeral Home.
This event is open to anyone in the community that is concerned about the economic future of Lincoln/Logan County. All ages are encouraged to attend, particularly high school and college students. There is no admission fee for this event; any donations will go to support the Young Professionals Network. Reservations are not required, but are encouraged to help organizers prepare. Please contact Meghan at the Chamber to RSVP or for more details at (217) 735-2385 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Young Professionals Network (YPN) is designed for individuals in their 20’s and 30’s who work in Lincoln and Logan County. The purpose of this group is to connect young professionals with one another, to build strong relationships, to grow together and develop ties to the community.
