Entrepreneurial Meetup @ No. Six Depot Roastery & Cafe
Jan 30 @ 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Come to an Entrepreneurial Meetup

We’re back at No. Six Depot in January. Join us for coffee, Banana Nutella muffins, and conversation in Six Depot’s gallery space.

Many of us know, by word of mouth and a bit of observation, that opening a cafe or restaurant is incredibly challenging. What we don’t know are the details or the emotional costs of doing so, largely because we’ve not done it ourselves. That said, if you know of someone contemplating opening a cafe, coffee shop or restaurant, please tell them about our forthcoming Meetup. The owners, Lisa and Flavio, will talk about the real challenges and the emotional ups and downs they faced opening and growing their business, now one of the most recognized ‘new’ spaces in the region.

If you’re an entrepreneur, we also want to hear about your venture! Send us a message at economicdev@1berkshire.com to learn more about our open mic at the meetup.

We look forward to seeing you on the 30th of January!
