Strengthen and support rural economies

through business education and executed economic development plans that do not rely on tourism.

Helping Each Other


Everything is easier when you work together, rural communities are no exception.

  • Locals first. Creating an amazing place to live for current residents should always take the highest priority. 

  • Exports over tourism. Things have changed a lot over the last 20 years. Small towns are no longer forced to rely on tourism for "outside money."

  • Reaching further. We focus on helping small, rural businesses reach and sell further and small, rural communities find connections all over the country.

  • Fighting apathy. We help community members care about their cities, take action, and help lead the future of their small town. 

"I had NO idea all of this was possible until our discussion. [Small Town Hub] knows that they are talking about, is passionate about what they are doing, and definitely enjoyable to work with.  


... had my most successful year yet, in spite of the pandemic.
Thanks Kara and Small Town Hub!"
