Are Rural Communities (Untapped) Hotbeds Of Innovation?

Are Rural Communities (Untapped) Hotbeds Of Innovation?

This is a great new article from Forbes.   January, 2020

Based on new research for Penn State, this article speaks to the many untapped opportunities to grow jobs and economic development in areas outside the obvious tech hubs. 

Non-urban areas across the U.S. and the world are home to businesses that may not be on the bleeding edge of tech but have supplied their communities with jobs and dignity for years.  Their progress isn't measured in patents but in small incremental improvements to process and products.

I think this speaks directly to the kinds of businesses and consulting services that ageless entrepreneurs can launch to serve our communities, both urban and non-urban.  

Just saw that Ageless Startup is now available for pre-order through Target:

One of my favorite stores.  Thank you Target!

Eunice Lin Nichols - Vice President and Gen2Gen co-chair, - "Ageless Startup takes Rick Terrien’s decades of entrepreneurial know-how and channels it into a guide to help other “ageless innovators” on their journey. Along the way, he shares tips from dozens of inspiring social entrepreneurs making their biggest impact in the second half of life as they work to create a better future for all. If you’re committed to pursuing later life creativity and innovation, you’ll find a kindred spirit in Rick!"

Elizabeth White, Author. "I love, love, love Rick Terrien's myth-busting book Ageless Startup where research shows that it's the 50 - year old not the 20-year old who is more likely to start a successful business."
