Silicon Couloir aligns entrepreneurship with community vision to promote a diverse economy and a healthy environment for current and future generations.
Silicon Couloir is a 501c3 non-profit organization, grown from a need to connect aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs with the resources they need to succeed. This includes intellectual capital, human capital, financial capital, mentoring, consulting, moral support, shared work space, service providers, collaborators, partners, etc.
Our Teton regional community has an over-educated workforce, housing challenges, and a highly seasonal tourist economy. Technology now enables businesses to launch and be headquartered locally while serving a global customer base. We believe the best way to create sustainable jobs is to support entrepreneurs who create sustainable companies. Our community is as rich in intellect, and experience, as it is in ambition. We believe great things can happen when the right people connect and ask questions.
