OUR MESSAGE

Small businesses are the bedrock of rural economies; thriving in good times, struggling when disaster strikes – a point brought home in painful and graphic detail during the 2018 fire. We formed 1Team 1Dream with a clear purpose– to support and promote economic growth and stability in Lake County and to provide on-going education and opportunity to entrepreneurs and small businesses.

Join us. Help us open doors to resources that will invigorate, educate and promote success through the use of sustainable business practices including modern-day digital tools, marketing strategies, and mentoring support. Collectively we can make a meaningful difference – one small business at a time. We welcome like-minded individuals, businesses, and civic organizations to join our team.
