Last night's September meeting was a big success. Marianne Bourgeois spoke to the group about the runaway success of her local company Apex Innovations and what it took to grow from a company in her living room to one serving all 50 states and 14 countries with no outside investment. If you have an idea for another dynamic speaker you think the group would enjoy, we'd like to hear about it. Drop us a line.
