Illini Startups Informal Business Networking (May Meeting)

Event to be attended by University of Illinois Alumni who are in the start-up space: You have started a business, your want to start a business, or you would like to work for a start-up/small business.

Network and learn from your peers

There is not a set agenda but come to the meeting with ideas/challenges you would like to discuss. Many topics were discussed last time such as dealing with cash flow issues in service based businesses caused by projects that don't finish on time (due to client not supplying information in time).

Food and Drinks

Appetizers will be provided but main food dishes and drinks are not covered by the group.

Early Stages

We are still in the early stages of forming this group and as entrepreneurs that should excite you! Come join early and help shape the future of this group.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
