Episode 22: REVing up entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is not a new concept, but it’s a piece of economic development that is often overlooked. In this episode, Don Macke and Pam Bishop describe how the Energizing Entrepreneurial Communities Framework is being used with six southern Minnesota communities involved in the Rural Entrepreneurial Ventures program.

“This [entrepreneurship] is a way to grow a new economy by helping people with dreams and ideas take those to fruition."

— Don Macke
