The University of Texas at San Antonio’s Institute for Economic Development would like to personally invite you to the Annual Texas Rural Challenge.
This statewide conference on rural business development is hosted by the Office of the Governor, the Texas Economic Development Council, the Texas Department of Agriculture, USDA—Rural Development, and UTSA’s Institute for Economic Development—SBDC Rural Business Program. In addition, a large number of state and federal agencies, along with private sector partners, will host and participate in this event; the largest of its kind to focus on the challenges facing rural Texans.
This year’s Texas Rural Challenge will feature engaging and accomplished leaders in business and government. The conference will highlight topics and best practices in business and economic development, community development, and rural statewide issues like healthcare and tourism. We have also added the Texas Student Challenge—a business plan competition for college students.
