In partnership with the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development, representatives from the Small Business Administration and USDA-Rural Development agencies will present their current programs for small businesses and entrepreneurs and share best practices for reaching rural entrepreneurs in the North Central Region. Following the presentation by each agency, a panel discussion will take place covering topics such as communication methods utilized to reach rural entrepreneurs, partnerships in rural settings, and opportunities with the new Infrastructure Law.
