Sponsored by PNC Bank and created in coordination with MEDA and the counties of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s, the “Southern Maryland Entrepreneurial Conference” Building For The Future, is for entrepreneurs – current and aspiring – and for those who work with and support entrepreneurs. Attendees will learn about the resources, tools, and assets in Southern Maryland that are the building blocks of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and share their own insights and experiences to help shape the future of entrepreneurship in the region. The program will include keynote and panel formats.

Highlighting current entrepreneurial resources, the Southern Maryland Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Resources Panel boasts speakers from technology, education, and small business.  These regional experts will discuss innovative entrepreneur-focused resources located in the tri-county region. Our panelists herald from a variety of organizations, each with the goal of enhancing and developing small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Southern Maryland region.

Regional Innovation Collaborative Workgroups will present the newly launched Southern Maryland Regional Innovation Collaborative (RIC) with two-way discussion on how that initiative can support and enhance entrepreneurship. This interactive group discussion will highlight ways to: Promote Quality of Life Assets in the Region; Create a More Coordinated and Robust Startup Support System; Develop Programming and Funding to Support Business Diversification & Small Business Growth. Attendees will select their workgroup.

This event is open to MEDA Members and elected and appointed officials.
