What we're about

We are a group of entrepreneurs who are passionate about mutual and collaborative sharing of knowledge and experiences in starting and growing a successful business. Each member is invited to be both a contributor and a learner. We focus on practical steps to build our businesses in a manner that recognizes our deep connection and inter-relatedness to one another and the planet.

In addition to the opportunity to meet new people with like interests and build lasting relationships, each meeting features a 45-minute presentation by a group member or guest presenter for inspiration and skills-building. Following the guest presenter, we may have breakout group sessions with volunteer members leading discussions.

NEW SPONSOR: We are pleased to have the SCORE Asheville chapter as our new sponsor beginning January 2018! Please check out their website for a complete listing of their free consulting/mentoring/training services for entrepreneurs: https://asheville.score.org/
