Have you heard about our Venture Acceleration Program

We offer entrepreneurs a structured approach to growing a company, the Venture Growth Model. If you participate, you'll enjoy ongoing coaching from experienced Executives in Residence (EIRs).

We're pleased to announce that Beth Gallup has joined the KRIC team as an EIR.

As one of our two EIRs, Beth will bring her considerable business and coaching skills to entrepreneurs willing to take the plunge.  

"The East Kootenay is a long way from Silicon Valley," she says. "That doesn't exclude us from incubating ideas.  

"Here, innovations often develop in response to our geography, climate, and dispersed population. There are real opportunities for new venture development."
