  • Introduction of myself and set the tone of the presentation
  • The purpose of this presentation is to provide you with a brief summary of what the Entrepreneurship for the Public Good Program of Berea College has accomplished in the community this summer, the role of digital marketing and how five different social media platforms can impact the revenue stream of small local businesses.
  • The problem facing Appalachian economic development in the communities we were assigned to, Letcher and Owsley are: lack of youth(creative class)lack of diversity(example how EPG functions with different majors and compare migration rates)Decrease in Purchasing Power caused by Unemployment(slight increase on graph)The most significant new piece of information about the Appalachian Region for me is Owsley Letcher Creative class, 2000 0 0Employment change rate, 2009-2010 0.70 -1.79High out-migration, 1988-2008 1 1%Non-Hispanic Native American, 2010 0.25 0.14Percent Non-Hispanic White, 2010 97.98 98.37% of farms with sales less than $10,000 84.10 93.94Poverty rate, 2010 40.1 23.2Unemployment rate, 2009 10.8 11Unemployment rate, 2010 11.4 11.4*United States of America .

  • Who I wasPersonal growth assumptions or expectations did you bring to the EPG summer situation? How did these assumptions affect what you did or didn’t think, feel, decide, or do? To what extent did these assumptions prove true? If they did not prove true, why was there a discrepancy?How did you come to experience the value of “design thinking” and “human centered approaches” How did the concepts we studied emerge in the EPG experience (When did you see it or note its absence? How did or should you or someone else (perhaps a team member) use the concept?What specific ways are they different now than before the EPG Summer Institute? *Salstrom, Paul. Appalachia's Path to Dependency: Rethinking a Region's Economic History. 1998.

  • Entrepreneurial leadership is creating opportunities to learn for yourself and others, enhance economic growth while identifying and exploiting assets in the community.The impact of small local businesses is evident as you consider how best to enhance your local economic growth. Having visited three other states as tourists in Central Appalachia to gain perspectives, and completed a comparative study of how these small local businesses are shifting to alternative economies in the region. We witnessed the role of civic leaders and how they have been able to sustain economic change. (Advocating change in a community)
