Interactive forum where entrepreneurs can test drive ideas in front of a group of professionals representing an array of industries.
Test drive your business idea with local mentors and business owners. This event is open to entrepreneurs, small business owners, mentors and business professionals.
We encourage you to bring your concept, or product – at any stage of development. As a group we can explore your idea and suggest ways to better position it for the marketplace.
Our goal is to develop more community ideas into marketable businesses and products.
Our desire is to help grow the business community locally and organically through group interaction and collaboration. . . and of course, drink coffee.
