National Entrepreneurship Week

Due to inclement weather and widespread power outages, we postponed our National Entrepreneurship Week events. Rescheduled dates are below.



Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship

Thursday, March 11 at 1 pm via Zoom
Join us during National Entrepreneurship Week as social entrepreneur Brandon Dennison shares his perspective on why social entrepreneurship is such an important strategy for the advancement of the Appalachian region. Based on his experiences over the past decade founding and growing Coalfield Development (based in Wayne, WV), Brandon will lead a discussion on what social entrepreneurship is, why it’s particularly important in Appalachia, and some of the big challenges and opportunities that come along with it. There will be plenty of time for Q and A. Dennison’s work as a social entrepreneur has been recognized by national and international social entrepreneurship organizations including Ashoka, World Bank, and DRK. In 2019, he was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Employment and Economy.
