BAEDC: Entrepreneur Meet and Greet

Every month the BAEDC holds a meet and greet focused on connecting local business owners, entrepreneurs, and anyone else who may be interested in pursuing either in the future. Each event will showcase a local entrepreneur that will share their journey, discuss challenges, and lessons learned, and interact with the audience one on one. The sessions are informal and meant to be interactive with the audience asking questions or providing insight into similar experiences in their background.
