Last month’s meetup at Community First really struck a chord and we learned just how vital it is to be aware of businesses valuation and ‘building towards the exit’! Since then we’ve been collaborating with an exciting new art incubator, Space 42. They have an awesome space in Riverside and are investing a lot in the local art scene, especially the connection between art and technology. So on that note, let’s fire out the top three things for this summer!!
- Join our July Meetup at Space 42 (Thursday, July 27th) 6:00pm - 8pm - #StartupJax is hosting our next meetup @ Space 42 near 5Points in Riverside. It’s just around the corner, but you can’t miss it so whatever you were originally doing, cancel those plans and come grab some free BBQ and hang out with a bunch of creatives, artists, and entrepreneurs! We have a great panel lined up including the co-founder of CoRK Arts District, Dolf James, local music producer Chris Murray, and co-founder of Space 42 James Higbe. We’ll be exploring the intersection between arts, technology and entrepreneurship and it’s going to be worth the hype! RSVP here:https://www.meetup.com/startupjax/events/240674766
- The Florida Blue Incubator are looking for health solutions that address aging and they’re taking applications NOW! Entrepreneurs can apply through August 11 and they will select 6-8 companies who will learn from, and get to pitch to, their key stakeholders, decision makers and executives. They’re also inviting health executives and investors from across the industry to the pitch event. They anticipate roughly 150 attendees, providing great access and exposure for the selected participants. They expect about 100 applications, so the odds are pretty good! If this is something that interests you, apply HERE.
- We’re fast approaching our HUGE Summer Social as we partner with our favorite Jacksonville Meetups and head to the beach for tons of food, drink, games, a DJ, and great people. This is one you really can’t miss!! RSVP https://www.meetup.com/startupjax/events/241607499/
Thank you to our sponsors at Community First for helping us put on these events and for encouraging us all to grow our businesses! We love working with you and couldn’t do it without you.
It’s going to be a #hot summer. We’ll see you next Thursday at Space 42, then at the Summer Social!
