PS: I believe the topic would interest some members here. If you like to know more before going, please contact the Event Host of the above group 'TYPE'.

* FYI, Founder Institute is a company that offers training and startup launch program to entrepreneurs. I believe it's not just an info session for their service as they are having one on Apr. 14. Welcome to feedback to the group regarding how it goes. (I am interested but unavailable to attend this one.)

* Before formally endorsing a series of events for this group, I may post it at another EPI-Net group(s), and see the responses got. In such limited-promotion or FYI events, I'd set the RSVP limit to 30, and direct members to the associated group(s).
