Ross explained the events for October’s Startup Week in Laramie and the Ag Appreciation Banquet at the Gateway Center.

Melissa Ross, marketing and membership director of the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, continues with her update of the Chamber’s fall activities.

“Oct. 4 is Startup Week in Laramie, where you pitch an idea, with a team. It’s a really fun environment to develop entrepreneurial skills. I definitely recommend businesses send their employees, or if you’re a student or entrepreneur, get involved,” Ross said.

“The following weekend we have our Ag Appreciation Dinner on Friday, Oct. 11, at the Gateway Center. This dinner is held every fall. Businesses sponsor a table, then invite ranchers and others in the ag community to join them. All the funds raised at this event go towards local and youth agricultural organizations, and a scholarship,” said Ross.
