Celebrate Entrepreneurship on the Suncoast on November 19th with Jerry Ross from the National Entrepreneurship Center and Spark Growth of Sarasota-Bradenton. Jerry Ross, serial entrepreneur and executive director of the National Entrepreneur Center, will be speaking on November 19th at the Manatee Performing Arts Center in downtown Bradenton just around the corner from Manatee River’s scenic Riverwalk.
We are excited that Jerry literally has Bradenton on the map of his speaking tour.
This fast paced session explores a new model of economic development through local small business startup and growth, and it will also serve as an introduction to the newly established non-profit Station 2 Innovation Center technology and business incubator in downtown Bradenton, launched by Spark Growth’s Sara Hand and Stan Schultes.
