On the first weekend of October, 22 aspiring missional entrepreneurs descended on the Springs for an intense weekend. Each Entrepreneurial Readiness Workshop (ERW) is designed to teach and equip participants on impacting the nations through business and other missional enterprises.
The ERW moves at the speed of a startup. On Saturday alone many participants invested full 14-hour days learning and preparing for their team’s Sunday missional enterprise proposal. On Sunday an experienced panel reviewed all the teams’ proposals and announced a winner. In the meantime attendees learned, laughed and discovered more deeply how God may be asking them to reach the nations in a sometimes chaotic entrepreneurial context (click on video here).
ERW organizer, Jennifer of the gendesk.org, says that a Nav alumna who attended the previous ERW was so excited about the event that she brought several friends along to the October ERW. “It was the best Nav event I’ve ever attended,” she said the EDGEr.
Let us know if you or someone you know would like to find out more about the ERW and missional enterprise as a pathway to the nations. We are tentatively planning future ERWs for New York City, Minneapolis and College Station.
