Nashville Entrepreneur Center head to speak at chamber event


The head of the Nashville, Tenn., Entrepreneur Center will speak Feb. 13 to the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce's annual Kick-Off Breakfast.

Michael Burcham's talk on entrepreneurship and its ability to transform a community's economy will fit the theme of this year's event, The Legacy of the Entrepreneur.

Burcham played host last fall to 30 Sarasota-area leaders who visited Nashville to learn about that area's economic success. The visitors "were greatly impressed by the Entrepreneur Center there and Michael's 10 critical steps in building an entrepreneur ecosystem," chamber president Steve Queior said.
