Vermont Celebrates Entrepreneurship Week

February 20th - February 27th, 2010

Join us at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, February 26th in the State House Cafeteria as Vermont celebrates Entrepreneurship Week with a Proclamation signing by Governor James Douglas, followed by presentations by entrepreneurial students from Champlain Valley Union High School and the University of Vermont among others, and from business leader David Blittersdorf, founder of NRG Systems Inc. of Hinesburg and President & CEO of AllEarth Renewables (formerly Earth Turbines, Inc.) of Williston.
In addition to the presentations, we will have displays from students highlighting their entrepreneurial work as well as resources for people who want to start or expand their own businesses. And of course, refreshments provided by local food entrepreneurs. Together through entrepreneurship initiatives we will build and sustain our rural economy; and at every level bring innovative thinking, leadership and job creation to our communities.
Entrepreneurship Week is a nationwide recognition of the heritage of entrepreneurial leadership in America, and encourages entrepreneurship education as a lifelong learning process. Join Vermont business leaders, educators, and non-profit organizations to celebrate National Entrepreneurship Week at the Vermont Statehouse.

This event sponsored by: Vermont Small Business Development Center, Vermont REAL Youth Entrepreneurship, Vermont Commission on Women, Vermont Department of Education, Community
Economic Development at Central Vermont Community Action Council, and the Central Vermont Economic Development Corporation and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce.

The fourth annual Celebration of National Entrepreneurship Week is the response to the US Congress Resolution #199 in 2006, advocating the recognition of National Entrepreneurship Week at the local, state, and national levels. The Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education, at www.nationaleweek.org, is proud to sponsor National Entrepreneurship Week 2010, reminding everyone that our economy GROWS because of our entrepreneurs and their creative thinking.
