GEW: Growing Local Food Growers

Event Details

  • Date:

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an awareness campaign engaging millions of people each November through various activities, celebrating the efforts of entrepreneurs, and inspiring others, particularly those who face structural barriers or have never considered the idea of launching their own startup, to follow in their footsteps.
This year, 15 events are coming to the Mankato area as part of GEW 2021 due to the partnership and planning of more than 13 local organizations and groups. Region Nine will be hosting our own event, Growing Local Food Growers, on Monday, November 8th at 4:00pm. During this event, Region Nine planner Joel Hanif and consultant Anne Ganey will be giving an overview of the South Central Minnesota Growers Network. The Growers Network is a collective of local food producers that meet regularly to exchange ideas, create professional relationships, and gain valuable insight on small farm business operations. Additionally, plans to expand and incorporate historically underserved farmers into the group through a USDA grant will also be discussed.
Event will be held via Zoom. Reserve your seat here. View the full GEW event list here.
