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.
