Together At The Same Table

For the first time, High Desert Partnership has brought government, nonprofit, and Tribal economic development to the same table. All three sectors are committed to creating systems that improve Harney County's business opportunity culture in the long-term. The focus for BizHarney is on having a pulse on the local business climate, being a hub for resources and opportunities and promoting collaboration among the local business community. 

A Resource and Opportunity Hub

As a resource and opportunity hub BizHarney is uniting three entrepreneurial programs into an ‘Idea-to-Ownership’ pipeline for entrepreneurs of all ages and demographics.
