Rob Williams and Dara Macan from SourceLink share insights on how to work with a diverse set of funding sources including the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, public-private partnerships, foundations and more to underwrite entrepreneurship-led economic development and entrepreneurship ecosystem building efforts.

This presentation includes several examples of communities in rural and metropolitan areas that have successfully secured funding to build and grow inclusive entrepreneurial support networks.

Additionally, Dr. Lomax R. Campbell, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Community Wealth Building for the City of Rochester, will share highlights about his success securing significant funding to support equitable work and programming among key resource partner organizations in the New York Finger Lakes region.
