CADE Business Xcelerator Workshop

October 19-21, 2022

Lane Transit District is committed to connecting communities beyond transit destinations. Many business owners are critically impacted by economic challenges, such as rising inflation and increased fuel prices. To create opportunities for minority and women-owned small firms to receive business resource guidance at no cost, LTD is partnering with Contracting Alliance for Diversity & Equity (CADE) and the University of Oregon to sponsor the inaugural Business Xcelerator Workshop.

Entrepreneurs will receive valuable information on best practices in business, such as:
