CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead will kick off the annual Governor's Business Forum, which takes place November 7-9, 2017 at the Little America Hotel and Resort in Cheyenne. This year the forum focuses on how Wyoming can use innovation and entrepreneurship to improve the state’s economy.

"The business forum always features a diverse group of speakers and subjects," said Governor Mead. “It provides a great opportunity to hear from leaders with business experience as we continue our efforts to expand and diversify Wyoming’s economy long term through ENDOW.”

The Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation co-hosts the Governor's Business Forum. The 2017 Forum includes nationally recognized speakers such as Yaron Brook, Executive Chairman of Ayn Rand Institute, Nicole Kaeding, an economist with the Tax Foundation, and national fiscal transparency expert Adam Andrzejewski, Founder and CEO of Openthebooks.com.   

"With the dynamics of Wyoming's industries changing, we must focus on innovation and fostering our entrepreneurial spirit to broaden fiscal opportunities in our traditional industries," said Cindy DeLancey, President of the Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation. "We are combining national fiscal and trade experts and Wyoming experts along with tech firms, ag innovators, leaders in the tourism and natural resource industries and local community efforts to highlight a path to move forward."

For the first time this year the forum will feature a web app which will allow attendees to stay connected with fellow business leaders and speakers beyond the conference.

A November 8th dinner will celebrate the Wyoming Business Hall of Fame inductees. The Business Hall of Fame is a cooperative project of the University of Wyoming’s College of Business, the Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation, and the Wyoming Business Council.
