Grow Your Own Conference

Had the opportunity to participate in the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Grow Your Own Conference in Kearney, Nebraska the past two days.  Great conversation around entrepreneurship and how we are going to address the issues in the future for communities to be successful.

Dell Gines, Senior Community Development Advisor, Omaha Branch shared his thoughts about Entrepreneurship Based Economic Development

economic development = bringing jobs to people
workforce development = bringing people to jobs
The intersection between the two – is where individual human capital development meets incentives infrastructure, financing, etc. to develop people who create jobs and grow communities
