Webinar: Cultivating Entrepreneurs in Rural Communities

Innovative Approaches to Strengthen Rural Entrepreneurship

Discussions of innovation, venture capital and other tech-based economic development topics often focus on metro areas, but rural communities throughout the country are developing novel approaches to TBED. Two of these organizations – the Center for Innovation at the University of North Dakota and Business Oregon – will join SSTI on a special webinar discussing how TBED can achieve prosperity in non-metro regions.

To learn more about TBED efforts, join us for this month’s webinar: Cultivating Entrepreneurs in Rural Communities.

Enacting a successful tech-based economic development strategy poses unique challenges in rural areas. Yet, with educational attainment rates lower and poverty rates higher than metro areas, there are clear motivations for striving to improve rural prosperity. During this month’s Inspiring Thought webinar, SSTI will host a conversation with some of the country’s successful and innovative rural TBED programs.
