The Power of Pop-up Shops: A tool for rural business incubation
The pop-up shop gives start-ups, side-gig entrepreneurs, and existing businesses a place to test markets, build a customer base and increase revenue. Pop-ups are temporary stores, often in vacant storefronts and at events, that provide an important business development steppingstone. 

This webinar will introduce the pop-up shop as a rural business incubation tool. It will provide guidance on how to get these temporary stores popping up for new business and commerce in your town.  

Spoiler alert! You don’t have to do it all. Local governments can set local pop-up parameters, and then let the entrepreneurs do the work. 

The webinar is presented by New Growth CDC with the START HERE Business Acceleration Network.
