Entrepreneurship in the North

Local organizations and businesses have been working together to present you, Entrepreneurship in the North.

Our event goal is to encourage northerners to think with an entrepreneurial mindset by taking the limited resources and bringing new and improved solutions, creations, innovations, and value to their communities.

We will do this through guest speakers, workshops, and prizes.

At the end of our event, we dedicated time to “Raven’s Nest”, which is an opportunity to present an idea to a panel of judges similar to a Dragons Den or Sharks Tank scenario. The judges will decide on which idea they would like to fund, presenting them with a micro-grant of $3,000.
