Southeast Ohio is gaining national attention as a destination for trail enthusiasts, drawing tens of thousands of people to our region each year to visit the Baileys Trail System, the Buckeye Trail, the Moonville Rail Trail, and all attractions along Ohio’s Winding Road. To help ensure local residents reap the economic benefits of this tourism, Rural Action and ACEnet are offering the Trail Town Business Challenge, a series of five workshops that culminates in a chance to win cash and other prizes that will help you turn your idea into reality.

The workshops are structured to help participants expand an existing business or launch a new startup focused on regional tourism. Topics include information on securing loans, accounting tools, marketing strategies, and zoning and regulations.

There is no upcoming programming scheduled at this time.
