Creating or growing a sustainable business requires interaction, inspiration… and a lot of perspiration! But right now, some of these key ingredients are missing. Its why a European initiative identifying new opportunities for rural economies is launching an extensive program of online “café talks” and virtual visits open to all.

RUBIZMO has studied hundreds of high potential business models – and the conditions to make them successful. They are now making more of their insights available for authorities, associations, businesses and entrepreneurs for free to help fuel a green recovery for rural Europe.

first series of quick and easy to access 30-minute “Café sessions” and virtual visits will take place every Tuesday 11-11:30 CET in November 2020 and be repeated in January, February and March 2021.

The quick sessions are designed to fit in with even the busiest days; but anyone attending is invited to hang out for a virtual coffee and ask as many questions as they would like.

Join the RUBIZMO virtual Academy and network with our experts to discover new business ideas and take rural entrepreneurship to the next level!
