Founders Night — Round 2

January is full of extra love for aspiring entrepreneurs. This Tuesday (tomorrow!) chat with experts at “resource row,” which includes several entrepreneurial support organizations to answer your questions and show you what’s available for startups. Plus, signup for Office Hours, an entrepreneur improv workshop, and don’t miss a talk that will teach what to do and not when starting up. Check the lineup for Tuesday + Thursday below. 

Thanks to all the entrepreneurs who signed up for the Angel Speed Dating event tomorrow. Not only did we have more apply than last year, the quality and diversity of companies that applied was really impressive. Should we do this again? 🤔

Last thing, note that we have new times for Venture Café Night: 39 North. We now run from 5-7pm!

See you in 39 North & Cortex!
