Entrepreneurs are often thought of as profit-driven risk takers with only one thing in mind – making money. This panel discussion will dispel many of the myths associated with entrepreneurs and will highlight the importance of entrepreneurship in rebuilding communities after natural disasters. The four panel members will discuss the economic and social value created by entrepreneurs in community rebuilding efforts. Examples of the risks and rewards of establishing an entrepreneurial community will be offered.
