Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute Won't Be Held This Year

Thu 6-11-2020

(Spencer)-- The Iowa Lakes Corridor Development Corporation announced today (Thurs.) this year's Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute won't be held due to COVID-19. The event was scheduled for August 9th-13th. Corridor officials say the event will return in 2021. 

They add the decision not to go forward with this year's event was based on extended conversations with corridor staff, partners and the educational institutions involved. They say social distancing restrictions would have made it impossible to hold the networking events. 

The Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute has been held the past 14 years involving more than 400 college students over those years.
