The Mississippi Delta Regional Innovation Partnership is sponsoring an informal networking opportunity for innovative entrepreneurs and resource providers on Thursday, Feb. 19, at noon at the Grenada County Chamber of Commerce at 95 SW Frontage Road in Grenada.
The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required to assure the appropriate numbers of meals are prepared. The “Discovery Luncheon” series held at various locations across the Delta brings high growth and high potential entrepreneurs together with organizations and firms that support small businesses.
The goal is to build those critical networks of contacts that are vital to the growth and development of entrepreneurial businesses in the Mississippi Delta. Those attending will be able to meet others with similar backgrounds as well as becoming familiar with businesses and organizations with whom they work closely in the future. Over lunch, attendees are treated to brief presentations from a service provider and successful innovation-based entrepreneur.
“Discovery Luncheon” is sponsored by the Mississippi Delta Regional Innovation Partnership, a consortium of organizations focused on advancing the economic development of the region. These partners, including Mississippi Valley State University, Delta State University College of Business, the Delta Economic Development Center of Washington County, and the Delta Citizens Alliance, work with chambers of commerce, economic development agencies, schools and local governmental agencies.
Entrepreneurs and those involved in economic development are invited and encouraged to attend. You may reserve your seat by contacting the Delta State College of Business at (662) 846-4236 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
