About Us

Klamath IDEA is a community initiative committed to developing a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem in Klamath County to strengthen existing small businesses and innovators and support the emergence of new ones.

How do we accomplish this?

Klamath IDEA facilitates the linking of the varying elements of the entrepreneurial ecosystem: economic development organizations, government agencies, business resource providers, and financial and human capital. Klamath IDEA then connects growth-minded entrepreneurs to the elements and one another by:

  • Hosting IDEA Talks and other entrepreneur focused events
  • Supporting local entrepreneurial, pitch, and demo competitions
  • Co-hosting the Rural Business and Innovation Summit
  • Curating access to trusted entrepreneurial resources at klamathidea.org
  • Housing the Center for Entrepreneurship (a business training classroom)
  • Employing an Entrepreneur Concierge to identify opportunities and make connections

The Process

Contact us by phone at 541-887-8298, or email us at [email protected]

You will talk to one of our staff, who will gather information about your business and your needs.
We then guide you to the business resources that can best help you.
After a few weeks, our staff will follow up with you to assure your satisfaction.
This referral service is provided at no cost to South Central Oregon entrepreneurs and small business owners.
