Thinking of Starting a Business: Part 2

12:30 pm
2:00 pm

​This is the second of two meetings – the first was in late June, where we invited members interested in setting up a business to attend an initial meeting.

​Over the summer, members have been working on their ideas and are coming back for this next meeting to raise new questions and gain insight and support from the wider group on next steps.

​We will be breaking out into smaller groups, so attendees should be willing to describe and share where they are at in the process.
