    "Rural Innovation" sounds like a meet-up about fixing farm equipment. Not that there would be anything wrong with that, although I wouldn't attend in that case. From the description and past meet-ups, though, I know your intended meaning. And I am looking forward to another great tech meet-up!

      How about "tech entrepreneurship in rural communities" .. or maybe "small towns"? Although I bet we'd all be surprised to learn about the kinds of innovations and technology advancing the "field" of agriculture nowadays (pun intended)

      It's not a big deal, but I'd stay away from "rural" since it invokes countryside but also agriculture. I like the "Why startup in central PA?" by itself the best. "Tech entrepreneurship in small towns" is good, too. Nice pun, by the way.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
