Solutions to the Challenges of Rural Business Ownership:
“The economic potential of small businesses in rural America is far-reaching and has the potential to be a significant contributor to the country’s sustained economic growth.” -Amazon
While this may be the case, there are significant barriers entrepreneurs in rural environments face, some of which include access to capital, connectivity and labor. Join us for this hour-long session solely dedicated to answering your questions by an expert panel, including members from the USDA and a SCORE Mentor who specializes in assisting rural business owners.
