Business Building Brainstorming Sessions

Are you currently running your own business or starting a business?

Join us for coffee and conversation.  We offer space to bring forward ideas, challenges and opportunities with like-minded people. This Community of Practice allows people to engage and support one another as they open, build and grow their business.  Everyone is welcome!  Our strength is in collaboration.

 A community of practice helps you bridge the gap between knowing what to do and knowing how to do it. We lightly facilitate a topic of conversation, and you and your peers take it where it needs to go.
