IMPACT 307 to Offer In-Person Advising in Fremont County
The IMPACT 307 incubator program is now offering in-person business advising and executive startup coaching in Fremont County. The recently appointed IMPACT Assistant Director, Brian Young, announced his relocation to the county with plans to establish offices in both Lander and Riverton.
Interested individuals can contact the IMPACT Fremont team at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule introductory meetings both in-person and virtually, or call Brian at 720-365-6694.
“Establishing a physical presence in Fremont County adds another location into our network of business incubators,” explains Brian Young of IMPACT Fremont. “Having a new hybrid center will allow us to work more closely with entrepreneurs in Fremont County and meet the needs of those who prefer an in-person experience.”
Currently, IMPACT 307 has physical incubator space in Casper, Laramie, and Sheridan, which provides leasable space and exclusive resources to new Wyoming startups. IMPACT Fremont will provide the same one-on-one business counseling sessions and exclusive virtual resources to entrepreneurs.
Young goes on to say, “Although we have been working with entrepreneurs virtually for almost a decade, IMPACT Fremont will be more of a hybrid experience with a dedicated in-person business counselor.” IMPACT Fremont is an extension of the virtual services offered by IMPACT 307, a direct result of the $2.4 million CARES Act Recovery assistance grant to the University of Wyoming from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA).
The EDA grant has previously been described as an amplified effort to create new startup challenges in coordination with Wyoming’s community colleges, and a project to broaden IMPACT 307’s Incubator Program model to serve state-wide clients through a hybrid virtual and in-person structure.
“This is a very exciting announcement to make,” says Eric Schlidt, IMPACT-Casper Director. “Brian is working to build new opportunities for Central Wyoming startups, including the development of a new start-up challenge for County 10 entrepreneurs.”
