Too many small towns and cities think economic development is all about recruitment or chasing the next "it" business sector. But the reality is that every community has an amazing economic engine sitting right under their nose: small-scale manufacturing. These businesses employee anywhere from 1 to 50 employees that make products, sell in person and online, and can help your local economy become more disaster-proof.

Join Ilana Preuss, author of Recast Your City, for a discussion about how we can flip the model on economic development in a better way that highlights the charm of our small towns, and invests in our people and places. This webinar will show you how to build a strong and resilient economy through concrete steps to include all types of talent in your entrepreneurship efforts, why (and how) to focus on small-scale manufacturing businesses as a catalyst, and how new real estate models for main street (and downtown) can be essential to your success.
