Who's it for?
Entrepreneurs who are looking to learn more about being a leader and how to grow within their region.
What problem does it solve?
While an entrepreneur can start a business in an area, they will still need help to grow within the community at both local and regional levels.
How does it help?
The N.C. Rural Center will host a series of three-day Homegrown Leaders leadership and economic development training.
Homegrown Leaders is a valuable tool that educates leaders on the art of collaborating on a regional level. The resources provided were extremely helpful and the networking opportunities impressive. I met new colleagues that I have continued to collaborate with on a variety of projects. I learned diverse ways I can contribute to regional economic development in the counties that I serve through my work. It’s an excellent course, worth the time and effort to attend and participate to gain extensive leadership skills.
