Hey there entrepreneurs,
Welcome to theLoft!
We’re super excited about the launch of this new website highlighting all the awesome things happening at theLoft and beyond.
Roseburg’s entrepreneur scene is heating up, and we want you to join us.
In the past year, over 5 breweries, brewpubs and/or taprooms have opened. The Roseburg Angel Investment Network (RAIN) is preparing to invest $125,000 in the winner of a biz plan competition, and established businesses are growing.
And when you drive through downtown, there’s very little vacant real estate (and a lot more cars).
A lot of folks don’t realize that there’s a ton of opportunities within rapidly changing economies. Oregon’s businesses continue to grow, fueled in part by smart incentives and growth in the tech, manufacturing, food and beverage sectors.
We’ve got a diverse array of businesses here at theLoft.
We’ll be profiling those businesses and continuing to share stories from local entrepreneurs like KC McKillip, one of the great folks who work at theLoft. KC owns a couple of businesses already in pest and wildlife management, and he’s launching a brewery. Check out Trevor’s interview with KC McKillip here.
We’ll also be sharing stories about our great times living and working in such a fantastic place – along with news you can use about the awesome resources available here, like the Umpqua Business Center.
There’s lots more to come, so stay tuned!
