The Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau is partnering with EAC to bring a Revolving Loan Fund to the county. The fund will serve as a resource for small businesses, particularly in the rural and small communities in the county. EAC has the reputation and sound management to make this opportunity possible. We are grateful to have them as a partner as they have shown outstanding leadership.

I attended a number of EAC events and am able to compare them with educational and network offerings from others. EAC events are uniformly well-designed, well-run, and well-attended. I particularly appreciate the focus of some events on helping existing entrepreneurs take the next to step to sustain or expand their existing enterprises. The programs are not just for startups or those thinking of starting a business. The events in series also step through exactly the types of issues on the minds of active entrepreneurs -- not just seeking investment, but sales, hiring and retention, dealing with new mobility technology, and the like. The more purely networking events also take steps beyond nametags to facilitate the networking process, such as scattering discussion leaders among small tables and having a brief presentation designed to start discussions.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Training in sales, hiring, and mobility technology; meeting a number of valuable contacts at networking events

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add an academic advisory council, since two of the universities in the area have world-class graduate level programs in entrepreneurship.
