Doug Kelley takes the Spokane Catalyst trivia prize — $5 coffee card

Doug Kelley of Spokane was the first person to answer our awesome, totally difficult Spokane Catalyst Awards trivia contest.

We wanted the name of any group other than TechNet that was promoting tech and economic development, back in the mid-1990s, when the awards were launched. Kelley named INTECH.

Which is close enough, as the actual name was INTEC. (Who can forget those balmy days when INTEC moved heaven and earth to bring great things to Spokane?)

A number of other group names would have qualified, as well. Such as the Spokane Regional EDC, the BASR (Biotechnology Association of the Spokane Region), and Jobs Plus, based in North Idaho.

The Spokesman-Review business team follows economic development in Spokane and the Inland Northwest.
