Will Warren is on a mission to spread the word about the culture, community, and economic opportunity in Appalachia—a region made up of 13 states and home to over 25 million people. With a background in economic development, Will and his brother have launched a podcast called Appalachia Meets World that touches on a variety of topics relevant to that region. Will discusses some highlights with Leslie Parrish, as well as his emerging concept of an “Apportunity Fund” that could serve as an equity-based crowdfunding platform for small businesses in the region.
Appalachia Meets World is available on a variety of podcast platforms, and listeners can learn more about the Apportunity Fund at apportunityfund.com.
