Entreprenueza event Wednesday, Nov. 17

Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group is holding an Entrepreneuza event Wednesday, Nov. 17, at Mount Vernon Creates. The event is from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

This month’s guest speaker is Bob Rafferty from Iowa Business for Clean Energy, speaking about the future of the electric grid.

Marva Becker from The Nourishing Root will give an update on her plans for the former Kae Apothecary building on Main Street.

If you missed last month’s CDG Entrepreneuza event, you missed some great info and updates from Deetz, the app that can tell the rest of Iowa what we have going on; and updates from the SBA about a low-interest loan program with an application deadline of Dec. 31. We had a good group and heard from some local businesses who are making some real changes on Main Street.

This is always an interesting discussion with great local food. Please email director@visitmvl.com if you plan to come.
