We’re so excited to be taking on the leadership of #StartupJax and have already been meeting up to discuss what the rest of the year is going to look like. So let’s fill you in on what’s happening. Starting with June, here’s the top three things:
- We’ve just announced our June Event (Thursday, June 22nd) 6:00pm - 7:30pm - #StartupJax is hosting our next meetup @ Community First Credit Union in 5Points - which will be about helping you make the right decisions to drive long-term value for your business. It’s so easy to get caught up in the fun of launching new things that we often forget about considering the exit strategy. We are welcoming representatives from Pinnacle and Marshall-Stevens to speak about the business valuation process and how seemingly small decisions can have a long term effect on the value you're creating. Free food and drinks from M-Shack! RSVP here: https://www.meetup.com/startupjax/events/240674766
- Our August summer social is almost planned out. We’ve got one heck of a beach party going to happen as we gather together with our friends from other meetup groups such as Jax Tech, Jax Code and Coffee, RubyJax and others. The event will be at Hotel Palms and is on August 11th, so make sure to save the date! It’s going to be pretty epic.
- Lastly, on a more bittersweet note– it’s sad to see any business in JAX disappear especially one that helps us entrepreneurs gather and work together. So as we say goodbye to Co-work JAX in downtown we say hello to a couple of new co-working spaces that are setting up. One is in 5 Points called Cowork5 and is brand new, opening up soon, and the other is for artists and creatives called Space 42. We’re excited to see these new spaces open up!
Thank you to our sponsors Community First for helping us put on these events and for encouraging us all to grow our businesses, we couldn’t do this without you.
See you at the next Meetup!
Stu, Philip and Selina
