Entrepreneurship is foundational in rural economies. After all, most businesses are family businesses.

Over the years, big business has often destabilized rural economies. But emerging trends show an increasing desire to live in high quality, smaller communities.

Come out to learn about the next chapter of rural entrepreneurship. To keep rural communities vibrant, entrepreneurs need to be able to start and grow their businesses, in their hometowns.

Hear speakers discuss how they have started their businesses and learn to navigate emerging opportunities to launch businesses from anywhere.
