Two Rivers Entrepreneur Kinnection (TREK) is a monthly gathering of small business owners, startups, mentors, advisors, and others. It’s a great way for small businesses to learn from each other and “kinnect” with other small businesses and startups.
Everyone is welcome! Meetings are typically the first Tuesday of each month, 9:00 am to 9:50 am. They are open to anyone interested in hearing, supporting, and connecting with the area’s small business community. There are no attendance requirements or membership fees.
The gatherings are run by entrepreneurs and for entrepreneurs. Our typical monthly meeting features a guest speaker, someone who is in startup mode or who recently started their business. Q&A is an important part of each meeting. Occasionally, we will change things up with an outside presenter, panel presentation, or topic discussion. The one thing that will not change is our focus on entrepreneurship and desire to support area entrepreneurs.
Learn. Be inspired. Support small business. Strengthen our culture of entrepreneurship!
