Entrepreneur Community

Entrepreneur Networking Event Series

Corridor Connect is a free and open-to-the-public event that takes place at 7:30 AM on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the Corridor four-county region.

At each meeting, two local companies take the stage to share what they do and the challenges they're facing and overcoming in growing their businesses.

After each presentation, the crowd has a chance to both ask questions and offer helpful advice and insight. This is followed by updates from organizations that provide support to small businesses.

These events are the quickest and easiest way to get involved in the entrepreneurial community in the Corridor. It's a place where we all can learn, grow, and make valuable connections on a regular basis. Please be sure to share this event with others!
