Community Supported Enterprises: A new way to create and retain rural businesses

How does your community respond when local businesses need help getting started or staying open? For some rural communities, Community Supported Enterprises (CSE) — or local residents and organizations investing in businesses — help offer a solution. CSEs involve local people or groups motivated by a social purpose in the community — to provide access to services with significant community investment and engagement.

During our presentation, you will learn about examples of CSEs across the nation and in rural New England.

This webinar will feature research by Norman Walzer, senior research scholar for Northern Illinois University's Center for Governmental Studies.
