Workforce Development and Entrepreneurship Training: Opportunities and Possibilities

This webinar will share ways that economic development and entrepreneurship development organizations can collaborate with their local workforce development boards to spur entrepreneurship and economic growth. Two national experts will share both research and practical strategies to reduce silos and build collaborative programs between workforce development and entrepreneurship and economic development organizations.

  • Peter Creticos, PhD, President of the Institute for Work and the Economy, will discuss how the labor market has shifted in America. He will also discuss the opportunities and possibilities for workforce investment boards to adapt to this change through fostering entrepreneurship in their communities.
  • Angela Pate, Co-Founder of Startup Quest in Florida, will discuss the large-scale collaboration and success that has occurred in the state of Florida between workforce investment boards and economic and small business development organizations.
