TECenter Helps Entrepreneur Robot Builder

Gabe Bentz owner of a Nampa-based startup,  Slant Concepts, looked at several markets before choosing Boise for its low cost of living and cheap business expenses, reported Benton Alexandar Smith of the Idaho Business Review. Bentz began renting space from the Nampa TECenter in March. Bentz spent the first few months after his college graduation drawing the design for his robot and began constructing it after joining the Nampa TECenter. He now has his first working prototype — Jerry.
