WA Rural Pathways to Prosperity Conference


On April 17, 2015 over 300 people across the state of Washington met in multiple locations to learn how they can support their entrepreneurs and small businesses.

This conference offered a day of inspiration, learning and regional networking by:

  • Engaging with a national expert… without leaving their communities
  • Adding value to your existing rural businesses
  • Encouraging new entrepreneurs
  • and hopefully, creating jobs and improving their economy

Erik Pages?!!! I’m absolutely a fan of Erik Pages! As far as I’m
concerned he is the best speaker/thinker/discusser of entrepreneurial development I have ever heard!

The programs, efforts and motives of my organization in working throughout our communities has direct ties to what I’ve learned and gleaned from Erik.”
