Why we're here

VCEN was established to bring together the variety of local, place-based economic development practitioners for networking, learning and advocacy. We believe that united and better networked, we can collectively demonstrate to civic leaders, elected officials and policy makers the impact of building vibrant and entrepreneurial local economies. We hope that you will join our effort to grow and sustain local economies and support small business and entrepreneurial development.
