Experience

Concenergy 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 On 2nd Thought 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 to become who they are today. Inspiration ignites passion.

The evening escalates from icebreakers and power chats to live music and after-hour socials.
