Creative Entrepreneur Capital Summit

Ebenezers Coffeehouse Lower Level Theatre

April 12, 2019, 70 creative entrepreneurs and business owners gathered for the Inaugural CEC Summit. The 2020 Summit will continue with education, intensive networking, and honest dialog with hard questions with venture capitalists, activists, change-makers, innovators, and artists.  They learned how to combine their visions for creating change with meaningful societal impact with venture capital concepts. In addition, finance their goals for both short and long-term projects, yet create a finance and business infrastructure that profitably reflects their respective missions. Doing great things to create a better world and entrepreneurship/ finance should not be mutually exclusive terms. However, as these ideas are part of an emerging economic concept (though one could argue these concepts have existed in some form or fashion for quite some time), especially in the areas of urban revitalization, financial and consulting support from volunteers, nonprofits, and government agencies will be critical to the success of the process. Continental breakfast included!
