May 6, 2014

Now, That's Rural: Entrepreneurs and Innovators Who Shaped Kansas Communities.  Presented by Ron Wilson.

The work and life of many rural Kansas communities have been shaped by entrepreneurs and community leaders. This presentation highlights real-world examples of rural entrepreneurs who have built businesses and created jobs and opportunities, changing the way Kansans work. These businesses include manufacturing in Marysville, advertising in Downs, boats in Neodesha, trailer hitches in Humboldt, robots in Winfield, and more. The presentation also honors the emerging role of innovation, technology, and telecommunications that brought about so many changes.
