Interest Groups: K-12 Connection


K-12 Connection is a social interest group organized under the auspices of the Articles of Incorporation of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) to promote and encourage the development and advancement of programs and services in the specific entrepreneurship field and to provide a forum for information exchange.



The K-12 Connection Social Interest Group (SIG) is a collective to understand, promote and encourage partnerships between higher educational communities with K-12 communities. The Group met for the first time at USASBE 2020 New Orleans and has started to determine its mission and direction. Initial areas of interest to the group include collaboration opportunities, determining best practices and resource development.  


The leadership of the Group will initially be handled by Jim Friedman from Miami University’s Farmer School of Business. During an early SIG meeting, the structure of group leadership will be discussed and determined in terms of length and election of leadership.
