Future-Focused Economic Development in Rural America
Hosted By: Center on Rural Innovation
February 17, 2:00 p.m. ET (1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. CST)
Economic development is often centered on ensuring that people have access to a livelihood and a local system of support that makes economic prosperity possible. As the role of technology in society and the economy expands, strategies around economic development also need to evolve to make this prosperity possible — especially in communities across rural America. In this EDA funded session, the Center on Rural Innovation and Rural Innovation Strategies, Inc. will discuss the technology-driven trends that rural economic development leaders need to understand to develop effective strategies, and share case studies illustrating how rural communities are taking advantage of tech-based economic development to drive entrepreneurship and economic prosperity.
