Umpqua GrowthTalks are back!
Let's Grow Together!
GrowthTalks is produced by Umpqua Economic Development Partnership. As a Douglas County economic development organization, part of what we focus on is workforce and entrepreneurial development. The ability of entrepreneurs to start new businesses and scale them is critical for future economic growth in our county. These bi-monthly events will allow us to grow our startup community and lead entrepreneurs down a pathway to success.
Thank you to our 2022 partners!
We regularly hold Pitch Night events to support local entrepreneurs and small businesses. Prize funds can be used for startup costs, equipment purchases, and other expenses that are incurred when starting or growing a small business.
Apply today to pitch your business!
You can apply to pitch at one of our Pitch Nights for Startups or a Pitch Night for Small Businesses events through GrowthTalks.
If approved, you can pitch your business idea or business improvement plans to a panel of judges and potentially get funded.
If you are a selected winner, you can receive capital to start that business or give your current business a much needed boost!
