Blending in

Registration open now for the Basin Business Blender in June.

Registration is open now for the Basin Business Blender coming up in Cranbrook on June 6 at the College of the Rockies.

Those of us lucky enough to call the Columbia Basin home know that starting and growing a successful technology or manufacturing business takes more than just hanging up a shingle.

There is some help on the way is the form of the Basin Business Blender, a three-part skill development, networking and collaboration event for manufacturing and technology businesses.

Opportunities for networking and collaboration, access to resources and skill development opportunities, and a collective regional vision that supports entrepreneurs and businesses are all part of making it happen here.

Join Kootenay Rockies Innovative Council and Columbia Basin Trust’s Manufacturing and Technology Sector (MATS) Initiative for this three-part event for business. Go to http://kric.ca/articles/ for more details on the course and to register.
