Good afternoon Business Builders!
We'd like to give a big thanks to everyone for the great turnout last week.  And while it was nothing but positives for week one, we can assure you that our meetings will only be getting better.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 7:30pm we'll be focusing our energy on social entrepreneurship.  Social entrepreneurship is is based off the idea that we can use entrepreneurship to create solutions to social challenges.  Lucky for us, we have two well qualified speakers coming in to share their knowledge.
