Entrepreneurs are successful with a combination of passion, a solid idea, understanding earlier customers and a great team. The team entrepreneurs create around them takes many forms, it can be symbiotic co-founders, volunteers and a cadre of service providers.

This month asking for all types of service providers from recruiting, accounting, legal, marketing, manufacturing, product design, hardware prototyping and software to come to build out their networks and expose entrepreneurs to the vast array of talent on the South Coast.

Again this month we’re experimenting with the format of the program so we will be doing our normal networking from 5:30-6:00 and then we will ask the service providers to give their 60 second pitch (who they are, services they provide and types of clients they're looking for).   This designed to give other service providers and entrepreneurs the tips of the waves of each of the disciplines and allow plenty of time for questions and networking with the providers.
