What we're about

Entrepreneurs Connect is a workshop series developed in 2015 where we discuss business topics through local speakers and follow that topic up with group brainstorming where in teams, you practice and apply a principle that you've just been taught. The purpose of the event is to create synergies with local businesses to allow them to become a part of a family of mentors and mentees alike and avoid social isolation of being in business by yourself. Connecting is the best form of learning, join us as we work together to make your business successful. 

Our 2022 summer series will be back to in-person learning!!! Join us this summer for great networking and seminars led by industry experts from Meridian.
