This 90 minute presentation explores the history of rural innovation, how it differs from innovation in big cites, and the resources and teamwork needed to build healthy, creative small-town communities around economic growth.
Learn how innovation centers in Rural Oregon are helping lead the way to creating new, exciting small business opportunities within their cities.
This conversational presentation is led by Brad Attig, Director Foundry Collective. If you think innovation is the realm of big cites, you'll be glad you attended this event.
Brad brings 20+ years of senior business experience with Macy’s, Target, Montgomery Wards, and Citibank plus extensive experience both launching new businesses and mentoring entrepreneurs. His passion is to help rural startups and small businesses launch and scale to create community and economic impact.
