What's Data Got to Do with It?


U of M Extension invites you to join our inaugural Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) webinar on February 27, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (CST).  This event will kick off a series of webinars featuring research and innovation in BR&E.  The webinars are FREE and open to all those who are interested in economic development.

What's Data Got to Do with It?  In 2017, U of M Extension interviewed 23 economic development officials across Minnesota to learn about their professional practice of BR&E.  The in-depth interview data were compiled and analyzed using qualitative research methods and a report will be published.  Michael Darger, BR&E specialist for U of M Extension's Center for Community Vitality, will share key research and findings from the study.  He will be joined by special guest, Stephen Morris, who will discuss Ontario's provincial BR&E program and how they are using data to inform economic development in communities across the province.

The webinar series will help you learn about current topics in training and expanding businesses while creating a community of practice for BR&E practitioners.  Webinars are offered through WebEx and do not require pre-registration.  Join the session on February 27 at 9:00 a.m. (CST) using this LINK and watch this page to learn about future offerings!
