    Some of the people was nice but over heard someone complaining of me handing out my cards and explaining my business concept. I do hope to see those that was professional again But I will not attend this event again.

      I couldn't make it yesterday but would like to hear your business concept and I commend you for telling as many people as possible. I hope to see you at the next startlouis or connect with me anytime to discuss.

      Sorry to hear this! Sharing your business idea is one of the foundations of StartLouis. I'm so sorry someone ruined your night, please cone back again. Part of being an entrepreneur is dealing with all the people that don't "get it"

    Not sure who you overheard, Christopher, but sharing is a vital to this group. I heard a conversation discussing sales people attending and hawking services and products. We don't want people to feel like they are obligated to buy anything. StartLouis is a support system for entrepreneurs. Please do return!

    Christopher, please don't let some Bozos opinion effect you - they don't understand the whole point of StartLouis is to network and encourage one another

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.
