The Importance of Strategic Partnership
In creating the Center in 2001, we sought the input of a group of national leaders in rural economic development policy and practice who helped us articulate operational guidelines for the Center. They encouraged us to seek strategic partnerships with individuals and organizations engaged in the study, practice and policy of rural entrepreneurship. Since that time, we have sought to collaborate with organizations that share our mission of serving rural America and that can help add value to our work. We are open to forming partnerships that create mutual benefit for us as organizations but, most importantly, bring value to rural people and places.
Key strategic partners are listed below. We encourage you to visit their websites and learn more about the important work done by these partners.
