The unemployment, low quality of life and low salaries are the main problems of the Russian countryside which is in the process of dying now. The out-migration from rural territories to big cities such as Saint- Petersburg and Moscow takes place all other the country. It damages the regional economy due to the outflow of human resources. We assume that the rate of unemployment in rural Russia is higher than statistics data shows, because the majority of unemployed do not want to be registered by state bodies. A survey of countryside local residents showed that they need extra money, they are not familiar with entrepreneurship through the Internet, they are interested in making money through the Internet. Taking in mind the realm of the digitalization and post-industrial economy, we propose to renovate the rural economy with the help of self-development tools that involve the local community in the entrepreneurship in digital economy. That is why we propose to work with locals, teaching them to earn money with the help of Internet.
