eXtension is pleased to announce the “soft” launch of its fifth Community of Practice web site:
Entrepreneurs and Their Communities, available at http://www.extension.org/entrepreneurship. This web site will serve as an additional resource that local business owners can depend upon for unbiased information on a variety of business-related topics.
Like all other websites launched as part of eXtension, the Entrepreneurs and Their Communities site is populated with various frequently asked questions (FAQs) responding to the most common set of questions that users are likely to ask. It also offers users the opportunities to submit questions not addressed in the FAQ system, inquiries that will be answered by land-grant university personnel with expertise in these specific topical areas.
Over the next few months, the eXtension entrepreneurship team will be adding a number of products to the website, including: a synopsis of state and local policies enacted to spur and support entrepreneurship, learning lessons offering a variety of self-paced educational programs, and various case studies on innovative ways communities nationwide have designed and launched local entrepreneurship-friendly programs.
