Entrepreneurial Ways of Connecting in the Northwest

By Lori Richardson

Northwest Bureau Chief
(Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Alaska)

When I first started reporting for The National Networker about all things networked in the Northwest, I was surprised at the lack of sites available to help me learn about many of the states I cover. In a "summer special" edition here, I have reviewed each state again, and am pleased to find such robust resources for entrepreneurs and small business owners who want to grow and learn through networking.

This is the year of the joint venture or strategic alliance, according to Thomson Financial. With that being said, make sure you get out there -- be seen, and get connected.

Idaho: Gaebler Ventures

Montana: Montana Associated Technology Roundtables

Oregon: Oregon Entrepreneurs Network

Washington: Northwest Entrepreneur Network MIT Enterprise Forum - The Seattle Networking Guide

: Wyoming Innovations Network

And don't forget great web-based, "virtual sites" to connect with others - if you want my "Dirty Dozen for Entrepreneurs" list, send me an email at
