RURAL PROSPERITY METHOD

Degree-Online

Rural communities across the country and the world are struggling to find their economic foothold. At IEP we are deeply concerned with these challenges. To capture this opportunity, we have developed an integrated approach that focuses on developing the following 4 critical community pillars.

The Rural Prosperity Methodology has curated a structured curriculum that includes data, technology, and programs to ease the rural transformation journey.

Case Study:

Growth In the Rural Ozarks (GRO) was a program that was launched in 2016 in Southern Missouri. The program that started with 3 communities has now expanded to 9.

Program Sampling:

We recognize that each community is unique and sometimes need a deep dive in trying to understand loca challenges.

Our Core Operating Philosophy has guided us to engage with communities in an authentic manner and we work with an urgency that helps our communities achieve tremendous progress.

STRATEGIC CONSULTING

Case Study:

Strengthening Stark
Innovation Economy Partners was retained by community leaders in Stark County, Ohio to help design and develop a county wide economic and community development plan. What started as a strategic planning exercise eventually blossomed into a movement called Strengthening Stark that has become a convening place for leaders across the county who strive to build a brighter future.

Firelands Forward
Innovation Economy Partners was retained by the leaders of Erie and Huron counties to help craft a comprehensive workforce strategy. The goal of the study was to catalyze stronger talent retention in the region. The program helped launch deep collaboration between the public sector, private sector, workforce partners and philanthropy and led to the creation of a central coordinating agency that is deploying an array of workforce initiatives.

We are blessed organization. Our team has has an opportunity to be part of many communities, we have stumbled, at times we have failed, and quite often we have succeeded.

While the journey has sometimes been challenging, we have usually managed to gain some powerful learnings.

Over the years, we have accumulated our learnings and shared these with communities in publications and speaking events.
