Event Details

Historically, roads brought commerce and opportunity to rural communities. The roads of today and tomorrow are fiber – providing opportunities for education, business, and entrepreneurship. As businesses, we are concerned Indiana has not prioritized this investment. The lack of investment in this connectivity is already impacting these communities – from preparing our children’s education opportunities, through businesses being attracted to these communities, to entrepreneurship growing within these counties.

The hardest hit and poorest of our rural communities are suffering from record low graduation rates, high unemployment, and even opioid deaths. If we hope to provide hope to these communities, it will be through connecting these communities effectively to the new roads of commerce and innovation. If we don’t make the investment today, these communities will continue to suffer – as will our state’s ability to compete.

We hope you can join us for this important discussion.
