Thank you for attending RuralRISE Virtual Summit 2020 


RuralRISE started three years ago when a small group of intrepid rural entrepreneurial ecosystem builders assembled to develop potential solutions to help rural communities and the rural entrepreneurs within them. Since that time, this grassroots effort has grown to include hundreds of participants from almost every state, monthly video calls and countless hours of mutual support for rural communities across the country.   Thanks to everyone who attended our virtual RuralRISE 2020 Summit.
During these times, our work is even more difficult, but even more necessary as countless people explore ways to create meaningful opportunities for themselves and their communities.
RuralRISE is a celebration of all rural communities regardless of size, location and in particular a celebration of the hard work that each of you do day in and out to help create new jobs and opportunities.   Thank you for all you do!!!   



Join monthly conversations around successes and learnings from diverse communities across the country.

3rd Thursday of each month at 2:00 p.m. EST
