Entrepreneur Café a Success – Congratulations to our Winner!
Congratulations to Kelly Walker with The Studio – A Place for Learning for taking first place in our Entrepreneur Cafe on Tuesday night. It was a tough competition and ALL the presenters were fabulous! We’re already planning the next competition. If you want to stay in the loop, call the Chamber (540-635-3185) and ask to be put on the email list! The Entrepreneurs’ Café is designed to encourage the development of an entrepreneurial class in our community. The café will provide a forum where Entrepreneurs can gain exposure while addressing funding needs. Entrepreneurs present their project- 5 minute presentation & 5 minutes for questions/answers from the audience regarding their goals, experience and business plan – when all the presentations are complete, the attendees get to vote for their favorite project.

Did you attend the Town Council forum in early October? If not, it’s not too late to get to know the candidates in order to help you be more informed with casting your vote on Election Day, Tuesday, November 4th. You can view the video here or tune in to the Government Access Channel 16 everyday until the election at 3 pm and 9 pm. The Chamber’s Legislative Committee coordinates candidates forums for all local elections and state and/or federal when possible to help inform our voting public and encourage participation in the legislative process.
