RISEing Entrepreneurs

Networking & Speaker Series

The Regional Incubator for Sustainability and Entrepreneurship (RISE) is partnering with the Erie County Chamber of Commerce to bring you our 2nd RISEing Entrepreneurs networking event! This event is open to our area’s entrepreneurs, small businesses and those who may have an interest in starting their own business.  It is an opportunity to meet, share ideas, and collaborate in a relaxed atmosphere.

Jason Nemeth of InStore Finance, a rising Northeast Ohio entrepreneur, will join us to share some of his experiences. This year, Jason's business grew from servicing 18 store locations to 80! We will hear what challenges and pitfalls he has experienced and the tips and problem solving techniques he has picked up along the way. Learn more about Jason here.

We will also have the opportunity to tour the EHOVE Fab Lab, a small scale workshop that is open to the public.  The Fab Lab is equipped with an array of tools, including a CNC machine, 3D printer, vinyl cutters and more, that allow people of all ages to create, invent, experiment, and learn!

This event is free to attend and refreshments will be served. Please RSVP below!
