Value (VAP): VAP clients receive dedicated attention from an experienced Entrepreneur-in-Residence, a “been there, done it” technology and business professional. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
What is it (BBA): Non-technology businesses can access free coaching and consulting support from the Basin Business Advisors, delivered by our partners at Community Futures.

To better support our VAP clients, KAST has partnered with carefully selected professionals through the High Value Expertise in a Rural Environment (HERE) program.
Value (HERE): VAP clients receive free local legal, engineering, online marketing, leadership and digital fabrication services. To access, inquire about your eligibility for the Venture Acceleration Program (as above).
