SATURDAY—NOVEMBER—3

 

urrency Marketing, Cowork Chilliwack and Wisebox Solutions are rebooting Startup Grind Chilliwack! Startup Grind - powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, will be a monthly event at Cowork Chilliwack and is for founders, entrepreneurs, startups, and others working to get their business off the ground or building for the future, to connect and learn from each other about the challenges and successes in building a business.

 

Tim McAlpine, President and Creative Director at Currency Marketing said, “Chilliwack is growing and changing rapidly. Events like Startup Grind help connect people new to the community who don’t necessarily work from an office, but do interesting, valuable work every day.”

 

Michael Berger, Community Manager at Cowork Chilliwack added, “At Cowork Chilliwack, we not only support entrepreneurs in their journey to success, but we look for ways to build community."

 

 

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Startup Grind Chilliwack to offer another opportunity for entrepreneurs to connect and learn from each other.

 

 

Our next Startup Grind Chilliwack event is on Tuesday November 20 at 5:30 pm. The get-together will feature a chance to mingle over some dinner and drinks where you can meet other Fraser Valley entrepreneurs, followed by a fireside chat with Colin Schmidt from Wisebox Solutions at 6:30 pm and then a chance to discuss what you’ve heard and to connect with new friends at 7:30 pm.

 

Schmidt’s talk will take you from Startup to Acquisition and Beyond as we learn how his Chilliwack-based software company journeyed from a hobby, to a growth company, to being acquired by a Fraser Valley high-tech group. We’ll discuss lessons learned along the way and you’ll walk away with actionable insights that you can apply to your own situation.

 

For more information, or to register, go to www.startupgrind.com/chilliwack Tickets are $10 for early birds and only $7 for students and include dinner and a drink.
