DEC Holiday Party, Gag Gift & Jelly




Holiday Party - 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM. Join us on Thursday, December 19th for a Holiday Party at the DEC to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurs everywhere.  For the last three years now, we have selected an entrepreneur in need to assist.  Perhaps you could join the cause during our holiday event and help provide a cash donation?

Please also join us for complimentary lunch, bringing a dessert if you like to add to our dessert buffet, and also bringing a white elephant gag gift (anything you have lying around the house-wrapped of course). The funnier or weirder the gift, the better. Our goal is to make sure that Rob Kopp gets your collection of floppy disks or Matt Byrne gets your box of dryer lint to use for fire starting.  Get creative! 

Your hosts for the party will be Santa Chaz who always sports a beard and who just might wear a cheery red hat, along with his right hand elf, Sandy Blanquera (who has yet to find any good  pointy shoes with bells - size 10 if you find any!).  Of course you don't want to miss, Rick Coplin, who everyone says is such a dear (deer..maybe of the reindeer variety?).  The point is we want to celebrate with you and have a good time and say thanks for being part of our little community. So, come on out.

Entrepreneur - This individual has worked while working on growing the business and has been set back with repeated job loss while trying to make a go of it.  This person is actively involved in  servicing and giving back to the community.   A generous person, the individual has just hit a continuous streak of bad luck due to employers laying off while bootstrapping the business.

Jelly - The Dublin Entrepreneurial Center (DEC) is hosting co-working for its fifth consecutive year! You are invited to work at the beautiful and innovative office space at no cost on either of our “jelly” days, the second and third Thursdays of the month from 9am – 2pm. Feel free to check out the 75+ small businesses who occupy the DEC while you are here. Don’t be shy, pack up your computer and come join us for the day. Here are a few of the things you can enjoy while you are here:

• Variety of free training programs, discussions and one-on-one consultations for businesses
• Free and convenient parking
• A highly secure environment
• Free use of the wi-fi
• Café vending machines and microwave
