Every state in the union is attempting to get successful businesses to move to their state. They offer incentives, mostly tax breaks, in the hope of reviving cities and entire regions that may have been declining for decades. In Eaton County, some folks have come up with a better plan: grow, facilitate and sustain local talent.
This month’s CanDo! general meeting will feature Eaton County Emerging Talent Initiative. Their mission is linking young talent to local business, finance and media interests, as well as fostering entrepreneurship. In conjunction with Olivet College, ECETI is working to develop 60 ongoing internships within the region. The community is invited to hear and discuss their plan.
Because we at CanDo! are in the business of developing opportunity, we are greatly interested to hear what representatives at ECETI have to say and are excited by the prospects. As area colleges develop critical thinkers and creative minds, we recognize that it is in everyone’s interest to keep our best and brightest, our emerging talent right here.
Join the discussion at the CanDo! general meeting on Wednesday, August 28 at 7 a.m. in the Spartan Room of Charlotte Community Library. Add your ideas and talents to Charlotte’s celebrated incubator of opportunity.
