The Jefferson Grapevine brings together a variety of business consultants, mentors, coaches, experts, environments and events so that entrepreneurs can find the help they need to get them to the next stage in our development and, ultimately, to bear the fruit of a successful, revenue producing business.
The vine in the Jefferson Grapevine is a series of events designed to bring budding or maturing entrepreneurs together to network with volunteers committed to mentoring and coaching them, as well as identified private equity investors who might be in a position to provide funding. The program will contain a speaker with educational or motivational material for entrepreneurs, as well as a "Start Up & Shout Out" opportunity where you will be able to share what kind of help will get you over your immediate business hurdle. An hour of networking time, with food and beverage will help you mix and mingle with those that might be able to assist you on the spot.
If you are a Concept Stage Company or a Launch Stage Company, don't miss a moment! Our current series of events is building toward the next Southern Oregon Angel Conference where the Southern Oregon Angel Investment Group will choose one Launch Stage Company for its next investment and one Concept Stage Company can win a Resource & Cash Grant!
