Trent to Launch New Endeavor

The Nevada County Economic Resource Council will be deciding what to do with the executive director position now that the  contract with Robert Trent ends at the end of the month.  The ERC accomplished a number of goals during Trent’s seven month tenure. Trent gives credit to the board and committee members for their contributions to increasing membership, developing marketing materials, expanding Tourism efforts, and implementing the Virtual Business Tour of Nevada County.

Trent is proud of strengthening relationships between western and eastern Nevada County as well as playing an instrumental role in expanding a contract for services with Nevada County.

Robert Trent is moving forward with his work with Sierra Commons in Nevada City. Thursday evening he hosted a Business Re-Ignitor event at Sierra Commons that brought together over 50 local entrepreneurs, including Ol’ Republic Brewery Founder Jim Harte, to talk about what it takes to establish a business in Nevada County. A new start-up possibility was also presented. The idea is based upon a group of entrepreneurs coming together around an eight week process.
