Entrepreneurship Takes Center Stage at Fifth Annual MarketPlace Conference

Are you a small business owner looking for ways to improve your business? Perhaps a farmer or rancher interested in expanding your agriculturally-based operation by bringing visitors to your farm or ranch? Or maybe you are an entrepreneur with a great idea for a business, but just don't know where to start. You'll find the answers plus much more at MarketPlace.
The Center for Rural Affairs' fifth annual MarketPlace conference will be held at the Ramada Convention Center in Kearney, NE on Tuesday, February 22 (pre-conference) and Wednesday, February 23 (full conference).

The pre-conference on Tuesday is loaded with breakout sessions covering areas of business development, agriculture, marketing, innovation, community development, financial, youth and policy. Once the afternoon sessions are completed, don’t plan on going home just yet!

Alan Ovson, from San Francisco, California, will follow as keynote speaker. He’ll talk about why change is so difficult and how, with understanding, strategies and support, we can learn to understand our habits, align ourselves with change, and make it easier to “let go of what is holding us back.”

Tuesday’s activities wrap up with a reception featuring Nebraska foods and amazing networking opportunities.

Wednesday is jam-packed with more breakout sessions, networking, Nebraska Products Store and more. Help us celebrate five years of bringing small businesses the resources to enhance and grow their business.
