HOW WE WORK TOGETHER

We are an informal bottom-up Network with minimal structure. Our goal is to foster a growth process that is inclusive, yet efficient, possibly leading toward establishing a formal entity in the future.

We meet monthly to share perspectives, make decisions, and discuss collective actions.

We speak to the local press, elected representatives, city administrators, and our neighbors about our aspirations and selected policy issues.
We identify, explore, discuss, and decide whether to support or oppose public policies that would strongly impact our aspirations.

We help educate aspiring entrepreneurs in collaboration with local colleges, universities, and other educational organizations.

We provide mentorship among members and with local businesses and others who are not part of this network.

We increase membership by reaching out to businesses and other interested people.

We sustain a strong brand identity, online and social media presence, and press relations activities to promote our network and our aspirations.
