Harness the Power of Entrepreneurship in Your Community

The Michigan Municipal League Foundation is proud to host a series of entrepreneurial seminars throughout Michigan, October 26-29, 2010 by Ernesto Sirolli, the founder and CEO of The Sirolli Institute. Entrepreneurship and the power of growing jobs are central to growing communities in the 21st century economy. The Sirolli method shows local officials how to harness the power of local entrepreneurs to bring sustainable change through "entrepreneur facilitation." They've had remarkable success in communities across the country and around the world, in places large and small, rural and urban.

If you are a visionary leader, willing to consider a whole new approach to achieve transformational change, bring a team of key stakeholders to learn how this method might be what you've been waiting for!
