Pine Bluff, Arkansas (September 17, 2019) – A coalition of partners is pleased to announce the second annual RuralRISE Summit, a national event focused on building rural entrepreneurial ecosystems, driving economic prosperity, and supporting doers and innovators in rural communities across America.
From September 17 – 19, rural leaders from across the country will gather at the Pine Bluff Convention Center in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, to address both the challenges and opportunities facing rural entrepreneurs throughout the United States.
