Pollinator Enterprises Workshop with Michael Shuman
Apr 8, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Interested in promoting job growth and prosperity in the Monadnock Region? Tired of pitching to foundations to support this work? You’re invited to attend an all-day workshop with economist Michael Shuman, who will review the 28 models of self-financing “pollinator enterprises” from his new book, The Local Economy Solution.
This workshop will highlight “pollinators” that transform economic development programs into enterprises that are especially useful in low-resource communities. Enterprises reviewed will include those for planning, local purchasing, local investing, entrepreneurship and business partnerships. Participants will learn what has worked elsewhere, and also have an opportunity to sketch preliminary designs for their own pollinators enterprises.
