We joined DR Johnson (the cross-lam company), Online NW/Innovate Yamhill County, RAIN, RDI, Travel OR, USDA Rural Development, UO, OSU, Papé, and others at the State Library for ROD – representing projects and initiatives by private businesses, non-profits, and government in the following sectors
– Fiber communications
– Entrepreneur & tech startup acceleration
AriAscend grabbed attention outside next to Papé’s big equipment flying the drones they use to image vineyards. Fidgetech got a lot of attention as our EdTech tenant in a room of people very interested in education. In fact, Governor Brown, spoke about change in education and the need to get everyone capable in a well-paying jobs – reinforcing the CTE pathways investment. And it was great to have the Innovate Dayton and Willamina students in the room pitching – the only students there!
We hope we got the attention of the legislators and others that visited us. We sure talked to a lot of people – and made some important new connections.
