On-site insight from real, local small businesses


Join us for this monthly series where we visit local small businesses and learn about the ins-and-outs of what it takes to be a local entrepreneur! Hear the good, the bad, and the ugly – the “real talk” –  directly from local small business owners at their business location. 

The goal of this series is to strengthen our local entrepreneurial ecosystem by networking, championing small businesses, listening to their stories, and most importantly, learning from each other!

Not ready to meet in person? No worries! This series is hybrid, which means we will also be streaming each of these events LIVE on our Facebook page.

Thanks to a sponsorship from ABC Bank, each event in this series is free!
