Applications Requested for "The Year of the Entrepreneur". Deadline is August 21, 2015

2016 will be "The Year of the Entrepreneur" in Sonoma County.  The Economic Development Board is seeking applicants to be part of the planning process for this first-ever effort for Sonoma County Entrepreneurs. The Year of the Entrepreneur is a first-of-its-kind project, designed to help further grow the entrepreneurial ecosystem within Sonoma County.

Applicants should be energetic, creative, have a passion for entrepreneurship, and understand the hurdles facing small to medium-sized businesses. If selected, participants will help shape this exciting initiative, as well as be on the inside track on the latest resources and information available to small business.

The EDB will select 15 participants based on an application process, and those selected will represent a cross-section of entrepreneurs and professional services from around Sonoma County. We anticipate that participants chosen for the Year of the Entrepreneur Project will meet six times between September and December, with less than 15 total hours of time needed for the project.

Applicants can apply online at

Deadline for application is August 21, 2015 at 5:00pm.  If you have any questions please contact Mike DeWald at 707.565.7170.
