SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The first meeting of Tahoe Inc.’s new entrepreneur roundtable series will be held on Monday, October 10, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Untethered Workspace in Round Hill. The series is free to attend.
Each month, local entrepreneurs and small business owners will have the opportunity to meet and connect in a peer-to-peer mentoring series held in partnership with local coworking spaces Untethered and Cowork Tahoe.
The November meeting will be held at Cowork Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe, alternating each month between the two coworking spaces to increase access and better serve the entire South Shore community of entrepreneurs and small business owners. The next phase of the program will include a North Lake Tahoe launch to serve communities along the North Shore and Truckee.
“These sessions will not only allow for peer-to-peer mentoring, but will serve as a way to connect local entrepreneurs and small business owners with additional resources, including the Small Business Development Center run by the Sierra Business Council, Startup Sacramento & Startup Nevada Networks and others,” said Jamie Orr, Ph.D., co-founder of Untethered and Cowork Tahoe, and the leader behind Tahoe Inc.
Research shows that Tahoe is home to a growing number of entrepreneurs, high-end business leaders, startups and investors, drawn to the region for its world-class outdoor recreation and the unparalleled beauty of the lake. Together these residents form a vibrant and thriving emerging community. Launching this fall, Tahoe Inc. aims to link this ecosystem of innovation through a user-friendly digital network, events and activities.
Before Tahoe Inc., Tahoe had few systemic supports for entrepreneurs or individuals who wanted to start or grow their businesses. The effects of the pandemic, the Caldor Fire and the dramatic changes in the economy and the environment were a wake-up call. Local business, government, education, community and tribal leaders came together through an initiative called Envision Tahoe to lay the foundation for a more resilient Tahoe, one with diverse pathways to new career possibilities and for Tahoe workers to live locally and support their families. .
As part of a broad-based community engagement effort, Envision Tahoe resulted in an 80-page economic “playbook” with detailed strategies for fostering a stronger, more diversified economy fit for Tahoe, while addressing some of the critical barriers for economic resilience, maintain a resident workforce, and promote an inclusive economy. Tahoe Inc. is one of these strategies in the economic playbook. For more information, visit tahoeprosperity.org.
