YES Pubtalk Meetup
Local Entrepreneur PubTalks, the RAIN group, and other sources of energy are popping up all over Roseburg…

The Roseburg Oregon entrepreneurial ecosystem is becoming stronger and stronger each year as more and more interest, programs, and energy pops up in our area.  The RAIN group and angel investment competition is one of those efforts that our entrepreneur community jumped at the chance to build.

If you are an entrepreneur with an Oregon based business poised for high growth and you need capital to do soOR if you are a budding entrepreneur based in Douglas County and have an idea that you think can turn into an innovative business idea, but could use some seed money, resources, and help in honing your idea and your pitch, you might consider joining us in our 2016 Launch and Concept Competition
