We partner with rural community leaders interested in supporting seasoned and aspiring tech entrepreneurs in their local community. We do this through program design, implementation support, and incubator and accelerator feasibility studies.
Grant writing and funding support
We collaborate with rural community leaders to identify grants and funding opportunities that align with their long-term goals. Through the process, we help develop grant applications, design fundable programs, administer internal grant management systems, and offer training programs and workshops for staff.
We work like we live there too. Our team of subject matter experts and rural advocates largely live in or hail from rural America, which is why we understand the need to collaborate closely with local partners, respect that each community has unique challenges and opportunities, and recognize the need to evolve alongside our partners as their priorities shift and grow.
