Take your business idea to the next level.


Do you have a business plan that could use some help getting fleshed out? Want an opportunity to network with peers and connect with small business resource providers?

The Cultivate Lancaster Entrepreneurs Forum is your chance to get expert advice on how to bring your big idea to life and help it grow. Presented by the Lancaster City Alliance and ASSETS, Cultivate Lancaster is a free workshop for budding entrepreneurs and small business owners to throw some fuel on their creative flame – from connecting with influential thinkers and doers to learning about the many resources and small business support services that are available in the community.

Since its debut in December 2015, the Cultivate Lancaster Entrepreneurs Forum has engaged more than 800 local entrepreneurs and resource providers across four forum events, each offering a unique opportunity for Lancaster's innovators to meet, network and collaborate.
