On 10/17, participants of the Valley Startup Lab met for their first meeting. A year ago, the region’s first startup lab was offered by BDCC’s INSTIG8 in Brattleboro and this current offering is the first of many that will be offered throughout the Windham Region. Over the next five weeks, participants will learn about the “entrepreneurial mindset” and how to validate their business idea. Some will be working with LivePlan to start building their business plans. In a small group, we are able to really tailor a workshop to meet the needs of each business. It’s exciting to work with inspired and motivated emerging entrepreneurs.
