Event Coordinator, Denise Blashko says that “Young Entrepreneurs are increasingly becoming more important to our rural communities as we have a large population of small business owners getting ready to sell or retire from their business. This event is going to be a high energy day with our attendees leaving armed with an action plan and lots of tips, resources and new connections to help them succeed.”
