The Klamath IDEA (Inspire Development, Energize Acceleration) will host May’s IDEA Talk on Monday, May 1, from 5:30-8 p.m. at MC’s on Main. This month’s presenter will be Gerald Holt, co-owner of Creatrex Education and a licensed commercial drone pilot.
“I am excited to share with the Klamath Falls community insights about the drone industry. Since 2012, I have been developing and teaching high school engineering summer camps to build and fly drones. Recently, I began flying drones commercially so the community can learn about drone technology, the industry and how a person might get involved as a hobby or commercially," commented Holt.
IDEA Talks are gatherings hosted by the Klamath IDEA, designed as a networking opportunity for those with an entrepreneurial mindset and interested in learning, connecting, and being inspired. Each gathering features one or more guest speakers discussing an inspirational or educational entrepreneurial related topic. IDEA Talks bring together entrepreneurs (of all ages), founders, business owners, innovators and support organizations under one roof to hear about and discuss opportunities, needs, and great ideas for starting a business, expanding a business, or getting support in the process.
“We believe embracing and supporting the entrepreneurial spirit has the potential to bring the community together to reshape the economic foundation of our region,” explained Kat Rutledge, Director of the Klamath Community College Small Business Development Center and leader of the Klamath IDEA.
MC’s on Main is located at 617 Main St. in downtown Klamath Falls. Limited food, prepared by MC’s on Main, will be available by donation as well as a no-host bar. Networking begins at 5:30 and the presentation will start at 6:15 p.m.
Klamath IDEA (Inspire Development and Energize Acceleration) is a community initiative dedicated to supporting the development of resources necessary to drive the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region and encourage their use in the community.
