Over the last year, Main Street America and Forward Cities, in actionable collaboration, have developed and implemented a pilot program focused on creating effective, equitable, and inclusive community support networks for rural entrepreneurs. Working with nine fantastic Main Street Coordinators, the program spans the Main Street America network and includes 30 rural communities–with both unique and similar challenges. This session will include the content and deliverables from the pilot program, lessons learned, and a celebratory glance at our success stories, impact, and wins.
