The Thurston Economic Development Council will be hosting a business pitch event on Monday at the Center for Business & Innovation, 4220 6th Avenue SE, in Lacey.

Set for 12:30 to 2:30 pm, the event will feature three locally-owned businesses who are seeking capital to scale up their operations. The businesses will pitch to members of Thurston Investment Network (ThINk), a network of Thurston area residents who are interested in investing in local area businesses.

The first 20 minutes of the pitch session will be a short training for folks interested in learning more about the ThINk Network.

Attendees then have the option of signing the ThINk Membership Agreement and joining the network. Those who join are then welcome to stay to hear the businesses pitch; there is no membership fee to join ThINk and no obligation to invest.
