From the Ground Up: Growing Entrepreneurship in the North Central Region. RRD 191
Emery, Mary
North Central Regional Center for Rural Development
More than 300 people in the North Central region added their voices to a discussion on the importance of entrepreneurship to rural community vitality, often traveling long distances to attend one of 11 listening sessions held throughout the region. Among those attending were local leaders, service providers, entrepreneurs, and educators. The sessions provided an opportunity to learn about the many successful efforts currently in place, as well as to glean ideas on how to improve efforts to support and generate entrepreneurship across the region. This report looks at what is working to support and generate entrepreneurship in the North Central region, how it can work better, and what the policy implications are. (Contains 2 footnotes.) [This report was prepared with support from Cornelia Flora, Julie Stewart, Susan Fey, Kristi Hetland, and Pam Cooper. This material is based upon work supported by annual base funding through the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.]
