Presented by Ron Wilson

How can businesses succeed in small town Kansas? The answers can be found in what we have termed "ruralpreneurs" – innovative entrepreneurs who have built successful enterprises in small town Kansas, and strengthened their communities as a result. This presentation highlights real-world examples of Kansas entrepreneurs who have built businesses and created jobs and opportunities in a rural setting. These include innovative businesses in Marysville, Garden City, Downs, Neodesha, and more. The presentation also honors the emerging role of diversity, technology, and telecommunications that have brought about so many changes in society. It also reflects the importance of a spirit of service and community. This fascinating, inspiring, fun, and informative presentation highlights rural Kansans and builds pride in our state.
