Every Wednesday during the 12-Week, the Center for Integrated Entrepreneurship hosts Fireside Chats with local entrepreneurs.
At 7 p.m. at East Hall Forum, entrepreneurs will discuss their journeys – how they started their business, what they did right, what they did wrong and where they are going next.
