Alva Area Chamber of Commerce Director Alexandra Mantz explained, “We hope to bring budding entrepreneurs in the region together to talk and find resources that will help them get started.”
That’s exactly the right reason for small town entrepreneurs to attend these kind of networking events: to make local connection, to share resources, to succeed.
The coalition of groups working on this event are Oklahoma’s Partners for Progress, including:
- Alva Area Chamber of Commerce
- Woods County Economic Development Committee
- Northwest Oklahoma Alliance
- Northwestern Oklahoma State University
- Northwest Technology Center
- Rural Enterprises, Inc.
- Oklahoma Department of Commerce Business Solutions
This is not their first event. Earlier in the year, they hosted a couple of great workshops.
