MSU partners with Georgetown University for rural investment workshop
MISSISSIPPI STATE, Miss. (WCBI) – It was a day filled with networking opportunities for local businesses during Mississippi State’s Rural Investment workshop.
Several businesses and entrepreneurs had the chance to pitch their business models to investors from all across the country.
Organizers say the purpose of the workshop is to show investors the potential of small businesses in rural areas, and to connect businesses to those investors.
“I think it’s beneficial to both parties, also it’s beneficial for us at the universities to see what’s happening out in the private sector, both on the investment side and on the business side, so it helps us to be more relevant in our academic mission here at the university,” said Steve Turner with Mississippi State University.
MSU partnered with Georgetown University to put on Thursday’s workshop.
