The Palouse Knowledge Corridor is holding the Community Kickoff for the 2015 Be the Entrepreneur Bootcamp from 9-10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 7, at Pullman Regional Hospital, 835 SE Bishop Blvd. in Pullman.

The five-day intensive Bootcamp is meant to help connect entrepreneurs with experts in small business, as well as on its three industry tracks: Value-Added Agriculture, Human and Animal Health, and Technology.

“We want to educate both the community and individuals who might benefit from the Bootcamp about what it is,” said George Tanner, the curriculum director for the Bootcamp and the Director of the Vandal Innovation and Enterprise Works (VIEW) at the University of Idaho.

The Community Kickoff will include information about the 2014 event, including the financial and societal impact – several 2014 campers are further along on the path of launching their own successful businesses. It will also cover the 2015 event, including curriculum changes, scholarship opportunities, information about sponsors and volunteering. It will be in Conference Rooms C and D at Pullman Regional Hospital, and there will be a coffee service.

Media is invited to attend, and prior campers, as well as event sponsors and leaders, will be available for interviews.

The event is free and registration is not required. For more information, contact Robin Ohlgren, Palouse Knowledge Corridor Co-Chair, at (208) 301-1011 or
