New Albany, OH (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
The City of New Albany’s business incubator, Inc@8000, and New Albany based SunDown RunDown Group are collaborating to create new workshops, showcase events, and expand the New Albany Chapter of SunDown RunDown’s successful evening business idea pitch series to help attract and retain new ventures, connect entrepreneurs, and engage the community.
“It is exciting to begin working with Inc@8000 and New Albany to help entrepreneurs build their businesses and see them grow." – Paul Proffitt, Founder
SunDown RunDown will be creating a series of monthly workshops, called Lunch & Launch, focused on relevant business issues facing startups and small businesses. Guest speakers from local industry and higher education will be sharing their most recent research and findings. Topics will range from finance and marketing to ideation and customer discovery. These workshops will occur during lunch and provide a great opportunity for professional development and networking.
SunDown RunDown will also host a quarterly open house / venture showcase at Inc@8000 to engage the community and show the talents of local entrepreneurs working to turn their idea into a reality. It will be a celebration of the hard work and innovation exhibited often in this entrepreneurial community.
SundownRundown was formed in March 2013 as a monthly event series designed to provide a venue for central Ohio entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas to investors, mentors, and talent. Since then, the company has expanded to independent chapters in Akron and Mansfield Ohio; launched the Venture Resources Network to allow entrepreneurs to share and trade their skills or develop business relationships so that entrepreneurs can assist each other; and is in the process of raising a small venture capital fund for early stage ventures.
