What we're about

This group is focused on creating a community of starters and thinkers who want to solve real problems, create viable business models, and work together as a team to help take each other to the next level. We're dedicated to being a pillar of support for Jacksonville entrepreneurs. To keep the momentum going between meetups, we created StartupJax.co (http://www.startupjax.co) - come find out what's happening.

Curious what our meetup is really like? Whitney Washington, owner of RecordandCapture.com (http://www.recordandcapture.com/), put this 2min gem together for us - BOOM - https://vimeo.com/129082567

Help us grow and foster the awesome Jacksonville startup community.

Common mistakes to avoid when scaling a business: A Panel Discussion @ Comm1st

Community First Credit Union in 5Points

Scaling a startup is difficult because you're constantly stretching against limited resources. A lot of the more mundane aspects of keeping the lights on like managing the books or balancing cash flows can seem to just be a distraction from building product. In addition to our regular happy hour, on June 6 we're returning to Riverside with Community First Credit Union for a panel discussion with several local experts who will talk about key growth concerns, like how to prioritize back office functions, at what point bookkeeping becomes critical, and how to grow smartly without overshooting your cash flows. 6:00-6:30: Registration and Networking 6:30-7:30: Panel discussion 7:30-8:00: Happy Hour at M Shack Stay after for a free round at M Shack and we'll have burgers and fries and such during the panel as well.
