Rural incubator in Minnesota

Tuesday, May 08, 2007

Here's a profile of a technology incubator in rural Cohasset, Minnesota in which the US Economic Development Administration has invested. Read more. The story gives you some insights into the type of project that the EDA finds valuable.

The project started in June, 2005 when Cohasset received a grant from the Blandin Foundation for $1.5 million.

You can visit the site of the Itasca Economic Development Corporation here. The corporation is partnering with Cohasset to manage the project.

The Cohasset project is an offshoot of the Itasca Technology Exchange. This partnership represents the type of "hub withd spoke" alliances on which rural counties will increasingly depend.
