Bridging rural America to the future of work.
We’re building a network of rural innovation hubs to spark the revival of small towns across America.
We're an impact investing social enterprise. Our focus is on rural communities in economic distress; communities with depreciated real estate values, a decline of working-age families, and falling wages.
We're working first with towns that have the most immediate potential for success, due to a proximity to an institution of higher education, or a downtown district with under-used historic buildings ready for new life. We use a combination of unique data analytics and our extensive network of rural community leaders to identify our first engagements.
Collaborating with community leaders, we plan and execute a downtown innovation hub using local, regional and national partnerships, and proven best practices for fostering resilient prosperity in rural economies.
We use the innovation hub as a starting point to identify additional opportunities to bring economic development to the region.
Our network of innovation hubs throughout America will be able to share resources and ideas, become a conduit for jobs at companies based locally or around the world, and channel investments to rural entrepreneurs.
