Our Story

   

 

 

 

Silicon Couloir is an exciting non-profit organization grown from a need to connect aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs with the resources they need to succeed.  Our core programs help entrepreneurs connect with intellectual, human, and financial capital.

Our Teton regional community enjoys a highly educated workforce, yet is facing housing challenges in 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 happen when the right people connect and ask questions.
