Teton Entrepreneur and Mentoring Service (TEAMS)
Silicon Couloir is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on the Teton region of western Wyoming and eastern Idaho. We align entrepreneurship with community vision to promote a diverse economy and a healthy environment for current and future generations. We strive to be the hub connecting local entrepreneurs to all the resources needed to succeed: an expanded personal network, education, access to capital, connection to mentors, and leadership training.
TEAMS is a Silicon Couloir program formed to accelerate the development of entrepreneurs in the Teton region, and further the mission of Silicon Couloir. TEAMS is powered by volunteer mentors who are excited by innovation, ideas, and problem-solving for ventures. Mentors are overseen and supported in their role by the Silicon Couloir staff and an executive team of mentors. TEAMS launched in 2018 with a five-company pilot program, and now serves 30 companies with more than 50 mentors volunteering.
"The TEAMS program has provided invaluable connection to wisdom, experience, and insights from an impressively diverse range of backgrounds. This trickled down into our organization and served as one of the most significant and consistent drivers of growth which has resulted in a Give'r team that is stronger, more supported, and better equipped to charge onward!"
