The Oregon Technology Business Center, with support from the Janette G. Drew Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, is seeking an entrepreneur from the North Coast to participate in a six month Virtual Incubation Program beginning April 14.
The program helps entrepreneurs start and grow their business.
The program offers intensive education and mentoring to rural entrepreneurs with the goal of growing businesses in rural Oregon. Jim McCreight, an organizer of the program, said downtown Astoria spice shop Pat’s Pantry used the program to open a second location in Portland.
The program is limited to between 12 and 15 entrepreneurs. The total six-month cost is $79. Information and an application can be found at www.otbc.org/vip. The deadline to apply is April 3.
