(Fremont County, WY) – Brian Young, the Assistant Director to central Wyoming, specifically Fremont County, will be responsible for the development of the area and will also be the point of contact for entrepreneurs who have a product or business idea, and need more information about their next steps.
IMPACT 307 is a statewide network of innovation-driven business incubators committed to growing and strengthening Wyoming’s entrepreneurial community by providing resources and support for founders to thrive.
As the newly appointed Assistant Director for Central Wyoming, Young, who graduated with a law degree, has over 20 years of experience with companies ranging from startups to global corporations. He has held leadership positions at publicly traded corporate entities and founded several small businesses. His background includes governance, taxation, and executive management.
Young shared how IMPACT 307’s new branch in Fremont County will work together alongside other local businesses to create events centered on entrepreneurship. Furthermore, Young stated that he will offer consulting and referral services (free of charge) for people in Fremont County who have a product or service idea and need more advice on taking their business concepts to the next stage of development.
He also encourages people to reach out to him, even if they are at the very beginning stages of an idea as he can provide guidance or refer the entrepreneur through every step of the process.
Young also noted an upcoming start-up challenge competition for Fremont County where seed money can be awarded.
The template for IMPACT 307 Start-Up Challenges is a 3 stage process: an application period, followed by a selection period where the finalists are chosen by a panel, and finally a “pitch night” where the finalists present their idea in front of a panel of judges. The winner(s) receive seed money and sometimes an incubator site where they continue to develop their idea and plan.
