TEAM Rural
The TEAM Rural International Enterprise Academy is a place for ambitious individuals to explore their potential either as an entrepreneurially minded future employee or a self-employed entrepreneur. The International dimension of the academy is supported by a knowledge exchange network, the exchange network is a combination of individuals from research, education, and entrepreneurial experience.
TEAM Rural sources, brokers, and facilitates a “challenge” approach to building vibrant rural/regional entrepreneurial ecosystems. We promote and support rurally based digitally enabled solutions to sustainable development challenges.
Our stage approach to problem solving and innovation management is one where we pilot proposed solutions to give practical experience and insights, all of which can be used to review and refine solutions as part of an ongoing development process.
