New Year Resolution for Entrepreneurs

Have you written down your New Year’s resolutions for 2010? If you are a farmer, rancher, civic leader, rural developer, small business owner or are thinking of starting a small business, you should add attending the Center for Rural Affairs’ MarketPlace conference to your list.

The 4th Annual MarketPlace will take place Feb. 23 (pre-conference) and 24 (full conference) at the Ramada Convention Center in Kearney, Nebraska. You can register at and still get the “early bird” rate.

Attendees will participate in teach-ins focusing on finance, marketing, community capacity, innovative farming and ranching opportunities, small business development and much more. Attorneys, accountants, marketing experts and other resource professionals will lead the teach-ins and be available for questions.

Nowhere in the Midwest or Great Plains – perhaps nowhere in rural America – will you find a better opportunity to improve your business, create a better future for your community, network with peers, and access top-flight professional advice than at MarketPlace – Nebraska’s premiere entrepre¬neurship event.

MarketPlace was created to foster entrepreneurship and economic opportunity in rural Nebraska. Over 1,500 rural people from Nebraska and surrounding states have attended the last three events and participated in making that vision a reality. (Read their comments)

Could there be any more important time to attend MarketPlace and learn how rural Nebraska can lead America on the long road to economic recovery? Don’t wait – register by February 10 to receive the Early Bird Registration. Call Joy Marshall, 402.614.5558, for more information.
