Do you have a business idea and want to learn how to advance it? Join us for this free, 5-week workshop series sponsored by the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship, RAIN at UO (Regional Accelerator and Innovation Network) and Fertilab, Eugene/Springfield's early-stage idea incubator. Supported by the UO Entrepreneurship Club.

These 90-min. sessions are divided into two parts, first, an open to the public talk , followed by a workshop for selected participants to work through the material that is covered in each session with community entrepreneurs/mentors.

In order to participate in the workshop portion, participants must be ready with an Executive Summary, http://www.garage.com/resources/writing-a-compelling-executive-summary/ which will be used in the workshop sessions.

Those looking to participate in the workshop sessions should email an executive summary to Joe Maruschak - joe@raineugene.org.
