Campbellsville University will host a Wired65 Entrepreneurial Networking Seminar next month. The seminar will take place 1-5 p.m. Thursday, June 3, at the University’s Training and Technology Center. All 50 seats are available first-come first-serve at no cost. Those interested must register for the event at www.wired65.org.

“These unique seminars will educate participants on resources available for aspiring entrepreneurs and existing small business owners. Participants will meet, receive advice, and hear ‘lessons learned’ from successful business owners and business development advisors,” said Bill Thompson, director of workforce development, McConnell Training and Technology Center. 

“Breakout sessions will provide an opportunity to learn about specialized topics and network with experienced business professionals and other seminar attendees,” Thompson added.

Thompson and the team at MTTC are organizing and conducting the seminars as part of the Wired65 Quantum Fund project.

Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development is a U.S. Department of Labor Program that provides funding to regions to better integrate workforce and economic development activities. The 26-county Wired65 region, which includes Southern Indiana and the Louisville and Elizabethtown metro areas in Kentucky, received the funds along with 38 other regions in the nation and is focusing on programs to promote economic prosperity through raising educational attainment, strengthening key sectors, and embracing innovation.
