Experience

The Circle is the preamble to the weekend’s events. Homegrown movers and shakers gather in the space. You will connect with entrepreneurs, techies, freelancers, musicians, singers, visual artists, community advocates, and a myriad of small business professionals.

During the connection experience, be inspired by ordinary folks who have extraordinary thoughts in our “Three Good Things” talk series. Guest speakers take the stage in eleven-minute increments to share their views, ideas, and expertise on how to increase our collective potential. Speakers reflect on the epiphany which was the spark that caused them to change their resolve to open a business, be a force for change, help others, or become who they are today. Inspiration ignites passion.

Why wait for homecoming?  Who Got The Juice is a day party, re-defined!  Plan to meet up with old friends and make new ones in an interactive environment.  Play nostalgic board and group games while the DJs vie for your attention with the hopes of engaging you enough to shake a leg on the open dance floor.  The daytime collective has a little something for everyone.
