Our distinction is knowledge-based rural economic development in a region with two land grant universitites 8 miles apart collectively engaging in ~$470M in research annually.


Palouse Knowledge Corridor

Home to a nationally unique scenario that offers a tremendous and largely unrealized opportunity.


Two State & University Coordination

We are uniquely positioned to operate across state borders and within both universities to align and integrate regional economic development activity.



1) A national product development competition specific to Palouse produced commodities.

2) Through integration and partnerships expand the regional entrepreneurial training opportunities which cultivate entrepreneurial business startups.

3) Coordination with local retailers to offer temporary shelf space which enables market testing for local startups.



We are building a connection between university innovation and our regional business community.
