CORI announces new rural innovation initiative

The Center on Rural Innovation (CORI) has launched a new initiative to build capacity to create innovation-based jobs. According to the CORI website, the program is target at “rural places that have already begun working on building new entrepreneurship capacity in their communities . . . and will provide a fast-paced capacity building sprint in preparation for launch in the first quarter of 2019.” Communities will need to secure live-work space for the hub, raise up to $500,000 in operating funding, and apply for matching funds at the end of Q1 2019. Those interested in learning more and being eligible need to state that interest by January 15. Click here for more information
