About this event

One of the things we will discuss is the Chicken and the Egg, How rural can’t attract new industry without an available workforce, and how workforce won't stay rural without adequate local jobs, We believe you have to create the talent and jobs together, and it has to be a public-private venture… How? You have to figure out how to couple people, education, opportunity as a LOCAL foundation! Part of this solution is Education, and it has to happen in all 29 of our counties, Right now Bottega is offering a digital literacy course (this is a $500 value) in Salt Lake and Price UT, you must apply by Mid Sept if you want to be part of the October 15 full stack course… learn more at http://bottega.tech/accesssaltlake

Matchmaking skills and education between Urban employers and Rural communities is essential as is government and Industry collaboration.

Part of the solution is a partner program, which pairs companies and candidates, and utilizes different tools to advance both relationships forward and the use of predictive analytics and assessment helps in pairing these candidates and companies. By partnering and establishing virtual learning, meeting and entertainment locations within an advanced virtual presence network allows for cutting-edge participation with the entire world. Establishment of local opportunity hubs which allow for collocated campuses and co-working space and a place for groups to gather and collaborate is key as well! The intent for the JC Penny building in Price is to have a gathering space for local, education and visitors to Castle Country to collaborate, meet, earn and learn the end goal is quite simple, the establishment and maintenance of a network and community of People. Places. Platform.
