CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Wyoming Business Council will be holding a couple of events this month.

On May the 4th, the Wyoming Business Council will hold a venture capital first workshop.

“Over the course of this year, we’re working hard to do a lot of outreach and make sure that the public, the leaders in a community, the legislature fully understand how economic development impacts them at the local level,” said Josh Dorrell, CEO of Wyoming Business Council.

The first in the series on Venture Capital will talk with a couple of founders of companies.

They will discuss what they were looking for when looking to fund businesses.

There is also a State Small Business Credit Initiative that can be used for Venture Capital in the coming months.

There will be 2 more workshops that will focus on Mentorship and Fund Management.

The quarterly meeting happening on May 11th will deliberate on 3 proposed projects.

WBC will decide upon recommending investments to the State and Loan Investment Board.

One project is a business and community committed project in the town of Lymon. Another in the town of Hudson is an extension of a water line.

The last, in Sinclair, is a community enhancement project to complete the Parco Theater.

“We really like to have public involvement and again involvement from the leaders in a community, to understand how decisions are made and also how these projects can impact their communities to build resilience,” said Dorrell.
