Webinars highlight entrepreneurship for rural America

July 23, 2014 | 0 comments

WASHINGTON, DC

The American Farm Bureau Federation, together with the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Global Social Enterprise Initiative, announced a new online business training resource for rural entrepreneurs and Farm Bureau members. The series, launching with five webinars in 2014, is a key component of the Rural Entrepreneurship Initiative, a joint effort between AFBF and GSEI.

"The webinar series has been developed to meet the needs of our members who are already involved in rural entrepreneurship enterprises as well as those preparing to launch a business in their local communities," said Dr. Lisa Benson, AFBF's director of rural development. "This continuing education initiative will connect rural residents with cutting-edge innovations, business development training and resources that will yield immediate benefits."

An orientation workshop will kick off the webinar series at the end of July. Featured presenter Dan Durheim, AFBF's director of industry affairs, will provide a comprehensive overview of the national Rural Entrepreneurship Initiative. Interested Farm Bureau members and others can RSVP online at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/984624936.

The educational series was created to address the major challenges that rural entrepreneurs are likely to face. Workshops are scheduled throughout the year, with topics including:

· Introducing AFBF's Rural Entrepreneurship Initiative on Tuesday, July 29 at 3 p.m. Eastern

· Finding and Using Business Information on Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 3 p.m. Eastern

·· Telling Your Business Story on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 3 p.m. Eastern

·· Finding Money To Grow on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 3 p.m. Eastern

·· Finding and Keeping Talent on Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 3 p.m. Eastern

With family members at the county or parish level in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, the American Farm Bureau Federation is the unified national "Voice of Agriculture," working to enhance and strengthen the lives of rural Americans to build strong, prosperous agricultural communities.
