Webinars Highlight Entrepreneurship for Rural America


The American Farm Bureau Federation, together with the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Global Social Enterprise Initiative, today 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 by clicking here.


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:

Finding and Using Business Information on Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern
