RAIN Offers Ongoing Support to Local Entrepreneurs
March 30, 2023 — Inspiring Thursdays is a free event hosted by the Regional Accelerator and Innovation Network (RAIN). RAIN is a global non-profit that aims to connect entrepreneurs with valuable resources in their local community.
On March 23, the event took place at the Empowered Living Wellness Center located at 138 Maple Street in Florence. This and future events happen every fourth Thursday each month from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Those in attendance included entrepreneurs at all levels of business, from idea to pre-launch. Mayor Rob Ward, other council members and seasoned business owners were also present at the meeting.
Entrepreneurial ventures included services in the arts, bookkeeping, mental and physical health, plants and accessories, artisan crafts and more. The event provided valuable networking opportunities for those seeking support and a sounding board for ideas.
Larry Bloomfield of KXCR Community Radio on Oregon’s Central Coast summed up the spirit of the evening well by saying, “You can’t have community without unity, and you can’t have unity without U and I.”
