Working committee


The IIN aims to ensure that entrepreneurs in Illinois have opportunities to bring their ideas to life and foster economic growth in their communities

What we do

The Entrepreneurship Committee seeks to create an inclusive environment where opportunities are available to entrepreneurs across the state. This will enable the IIN to help increase participation, create more innovative solutions, and drive economic growth. Engaging corporate partners will maximize private-sector partner opportunities and further accelerate the growth rate of entrepreneurial activities that drive innovation.

To do that, the committee aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Identify current courses and/or activities and/or develop the appropriate educational curriculum for entrepreneurs that can be shared across the IIN network
  • Determine how to effectively disperse entrepreneurial opportunities socio-economically, geographically, and demographically to increase access and participation
  • Recommend the proper support programming that benefits entrepreneurs
