New Event For South Sound Entrepreneurs

We are excited to announce a new event, ‘The Startup Education Track’ hosted by SurgeTacoma in Tacoma, WA.   The Startup Education Track is a series of 14 free meetups designed to help entrepreneurs learn the basics of what it takes to successfully operate a startup company and to raise investor funding.  Each Meet Up presentation will last for roughly 45 minutes, with ample time for Q&A.  The intention is for each course to be taught by an experienced entrepreneur, investor or service provider who has deep experience working in the startup arena.   The first meetup is ‘What is an Entrepreneur?’­ featuring Diane Najm, CEO of Photopad.  It will take place on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at SurgeTacoma, 2367 Tacoma Avenue South in Tacoma, Washington.

By definition, we are all entrepreneurs. But what exactly does it mean to be an entrepreneur? Do entrepreneurs take risks? What are the characteristics of an entrepreneur? Join us for this informative event May 31st at SURGE Tacoma!
