Community Workshop Series

Are you a small business owner? Nonprofit leader? Visionary? Entrepreneur? Maker? Problem solver? Person with an idea? Do you aspire to change your community, state, country or world? Do you have a product, idea, business or technology innovation you want to grow? Are you looking to connect with others, gain valuable resources, and learn new skills in an accessible and low-pressure setting? If you answered yes to any of these questions, ASU Entrepreneurship + Innovation Community Workshops may be for you!



The goal of the Community Workshops is to provide entrepreneurship resources to members of the local community, in a series of workshops from October 2016 to July 2017. ASU E+I wishes to serve Arizona’s residents by providing resources, connections, and mentorship for the people ripe with wonderful ideas: artists, designers, engineers, tinkerers, businesses owners, community leaders, public servants, ideators, etc. In short, the workshops are meant to support making ideas a reality. Participants may attend individual workshops or all 12 depending on their needs.



Due to the generosity of our program sponsor, all of the community workshops are free to attend. Our goal is to make the workshop series accessible to anyone who may be interested in learning, collaborating with community members, and/or growing their entrepreneurial skills.
