Wilson, North Carolina

Innovation and tech entrepreneurship can happen anywhere — and rural Wilson, North Carolina, is proof that rural places are part of that equation. The Center on Rural Innovation (CORI) created the Rural Edge series to highlight the people who are changing the narrative about what’s possible in rural America. Learn more about Wilson and meet the change agents and innovators who call it home.

The Rural Edge series

At CORI, we have a saying: once you’ve seen one rural community, you’ve seen one rural community. America’s small towns are diverse and dynamic, and through our work with our Rural Innovation Network, we have the privilege of working in depth with 18 communities building digital economy ecosystems. To highlight these incredible places, Siegel Family Endowment and the Walmart Foundation provided funding for us to create video case studies highlighting our communities’ efforts.
