Washington Rural Pathways to Prosperity
Conference “Small Business is Everybody’s Business” achieves wide-ranging success using a new model of delivery.
Washington State University’s Rural Pathways to Prosperity (P2P) is a statewide economic development leadership conference that uses a unique hybrid delivery model to reach rural communities, revive the economy, and strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem. P2P uses technology to connect multiple sites simultaneously to provide an interactive webinar featuring a national expert. Well-designed and adaptable activities facilitated by local community leaders address issues and opportunities introduced by the speaker and regional participants. Small business owners and entrepreneurs also participate at local sites, allowing them to leverage the knowledge gained and apply it as well to their business goals and aspirations.
