Local Entrepreneur Forum
The annual REconomy Project Local Entrepreneur Forum is a catalyst for a new kind of economy in the Totnes and District area. It’s designed to bring entrepreneurs, investors, and other change makers into the same room to learn from each other, form new relationships, and hopefully, to begin working together on new enterprises that will increase well being in our community. What kind of enterprises? Social, sustainable, regenerative, resilient – new companies that create meaningful livelihoods and contribute to the community in positive ways.
The inaugural 2012 Local Entrepreneur Forum was a huge success with over 130 attendees, Be like a Bee networking session, and Green Dragons’ Den.
