Entrepreneurs and business owners have a new resource from the John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship. On Monday, the Institute launched the Miami Entrepreneurship Network, an online presence connecting and supporting the worldwide network of Miami entrepreneurs. The network will serve as a hub for networking, information, opportunities, innovation, and inspiration.

The launch is taking place during the coronavirus crisis that has shuttered many businesses and companies as part of the effort to contain the spread of the illness.

“We have been reminded that many businesses are struggling to cope with the economic downturn and we want to offer our support to startup founders, small business owners, and leaders of non-profit organizations,” institute director Tim Holcomb said. “That’s why we’ve chosen this time to introduce the network as a channel to provide support, tools, and other resources to businesses affected most by the crisis.”

“Despite the many challenges we all now face, Miami, the Farmer School, and the Altman Institute remain open for business, carrying out remote instruction for more than 1,000 undergraduate entrepreneurship students, and our faculty and staff are working diligently to find new and innovative ways to translate our content and events into online platforms where possible,” Holcomb said.
