RURAL INNOVATION INITIATIVE
Tuesday, December 25, 2018
In partnership with our sister organization, RISI, we’re helping rural communities realize their vision for creating digital economy jobs and kickstarting their economies.
Rural America has struggled to bounce back from the recession. Entrepreneurship has been on the decline for the last decade, and the trend is hitting rural communities particularly hard. The Rural Innovation Initiative will help communities change that story.
This new project will work to bridge the opportunity gap in rural America by helping communities build the capacity to create resilient, innovation-based jobs.
For rural places that have already begun working on building new entrepreneurship capacity in their communities, the Rural Innovation Initiative will provide a fast-paced capacity building sprint in preparation for launch in the first quarter of 2019.
