And yes, this awesomeness happens EVERY Thursday!


Connections | 5pm – 8pm

This is where ideas and innovators collide. We provide a shared common meeting ground and forum for the semi-serendipitous encounters that often foster brainstorming and drive creativity. It’s an opportunity to meet like-minded innovators to create meaningful connections, exchange ideas and forge new collaborations. You’ll also get to meet innovative local nonprofits and have fun, interactive experiences. Plus free beer + wine!


Events |  6pm – 8pm

Imagine a weekly entrepreneurial conference!  Beginning at 6pm every week we offer a dynamic slate of events on a variety of topics of interest to entrepreneurs, intrepreneurs, businesses, and corporate leaders. We’ll span all sectors and niches. You’ll experience panel discussions, workshops, presentations, product demos, test marketing, unconferences, interviews, hackathons, and more.
