Make the most of your noon hour with an entrepreneur Lunch and Learn. Join us for a lunch talk with special guest speaker, Nate Wildfire of Business Oregon who will share about the financial resources available for Oregon’s entrepreneurs.

Our group will be located in the banquet room where lunch will be no-host, but drinks and appetizer will be provided.

Nate is the Capital Strategist for Business Oregon, the State’s economic development agency, and is also the Director of the Oregon Growth Board, an investment “funder of funds” run by the State. In this dual role, Nate helps fill capital gaps in different industry sectors and stages by investing in loan funds, angel funds, and venture funds that invest across Oregon. Prior to working in the Pacific Northwest, Nate worked on economic and community development projects in Burlington, Vermont and his hometown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
