The Future of Our Communities is in Our Hands
Marketplace will provide an opportunity for rural people from across the region to come together and share the spark of innovation and entrepreneurship that can revitalize rural small businesses and entire rural communities if given the chance. Marketplace will provide information and training for everyone involved in community development, from those who are starting their own business, to lenders, developers, public officials and others who want to help them. And it will be a great place to find a fresh idea, or perhaps some guidance from someone who has already been down the road you are on now.
MarketPlace will be held in La Junta, Colorado at the Otero Junior College on Friday, October 10, 2008. It will offer informational sessions focusing on financing, marketing, community capacity, innovative agricultural opportunities, small business development and public policy.
