The Mississippi Development Authority’s Entrepreneur Center 2017 Fall Webinar Series kicks off at noon Sept. 12 with “Financing Your New Business,” led by George Broadstreet, Renasant Bank community outreach specialist.

The series is designed to help entrepreneurs boost their business profile in communities around the state. The webinars, presented in partnership with the University of Mississippi’s McLean Institute for Public Service and Community Engagement, are designed especially for entrepreneurs.

“We are excited to work with MDA and the Entrepreneur Center through the webinar series,” said J.R. Love, project manager for the institute’s Catalyzing Entrepreneurship and Economic Development initiative. “The webinars provide our CEED students and community partners throughout Mississippi relevant information as they seek to start and strengthen their own business.”

Nash Nunnery, project manager for the Entrepreneur Center and host for the webinar series, agreed.

“We are happy to partner with the McLean Institute on our 2017 Fall Webinar Series featuring an outstanding lineup of presenters,” he said. “Entrepreneurship is booming in Mississippi, and these webinars are designed to enlighten and inform both aspiring and existing entrepreneurs in our state.”

UM alumna Mary Blessey said she is looking forward to the webinar series.

“The Entrepreneur Center’s webinar series is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs around the state to connect with each other and learn about new opportunities,” said Blessey, founder of Holley Street Media LLC. “As a graduate of the McLean Institute’s CEED Initiative and a new small business owner myself, I’m excited to follow along with this helpful series.”
