VBIA Conference: Nurturing Entrepreneurial Skills and Small Business Potential

From the Virginia Business Incubator Association (VBIA):

Repeated studies have shown that the majority of a region's economic growth comes from within and from new or expanding businesses. While business relocations are satisfying, they are not the driving force for success.

Learn how to identify and develop the foundations for entrepreneurial success at Growing Your Own – Nurturing Entrepreneurial Skills and Small Business Potential, the 2012 Virginia Business Incubation Association (VBIA) Conference to be held at the Double Tree Hotel in Charlottesville, Virginia, on October 22-23, 2012.

Come and explore leading ideas to increase entrepreneurial and small business vitality in your community. Attendees will be exposed to innovative concepts and best practices from leading practitioners who will provide you with a framework on how to encourage economic growth from within.

Here are the conference agenda (.pdf) and the speaker biographies (.pdf).
