The Electric Works team is bringing Travis Sheridan, President of Cambridge Innovation Center’s (CIC) Venture Café Global Institute, to Fort Wayne from August 6-9 to meet with founders and key startup support stakeholders. In support of the Regional Partnership’s Business Attraction and Talent Attraction strategies, we are working with Crystal Vann Wallstrom to help organize meetings and events to get the most out of his visit. Details below.
Venture Café started in Boston in 2009 as an informal, organic gathering for innovators. Today it has a network of Venture Cafés in Miami, Boston, Winston-Salem, St. Louis, and internationally in Tokyo, Japan and Rotterdam, Netherlands. They are opening additional locations around the globe in Sydney, Dublin, London, Warsaw, and New York.
Their mission is to connect innovators to make things happen and they do that through a public network of spaces and programs to help anyone with an idea succeed. Part of the secret is broadening how innovation is applied, building an inclusive community and connecting locally, nationally and globally. Venture Café is driven by the belief that innovation is a process to improve the human condition and its programs sit at the nexus of innovation, entrepreneurship and economic mobility.
Electric Works ultimately hopes to have Venture Café involved and onsite at Electric Works.
In addition to one-on-one meetings with Travis, we are helping to host three group breakfast meetings to be held at the Regional Partnership offices (200 East Main Street, Suite 910, Fort Wayne, IN 46802). We hope that you are available to attend one of those breakfast meetings.
- August 7th, 7:45-8:45 AM
- August 8th, 7:45-8:45 AM
- August 9th, 7:45-8:45 AM
