Join your fellow Rochester entrepreneurs for ROCC’s June meeting on Friday morning, June 13th. Our guest speaker is Jerry Horton, founder of such notable enterprises as SweetWater Energy and CedarCreek P&T, among others.
Those of you who know Jerry know that he is passionate about our region and dedicated to sharing his knowledge and expertise. When it comes to starting companies, Jerry’s “been there” on multiple occasions; he knows what to watch out for and how to successfully navigate the often rough and tumble startup roadmap. He will share insights and tips, an overview of the companies he’s founded, and what he’s up to currently.
This will be a dynamic, value-packed session. As always, there will be plenty of time for networking and general discussion.
If you plan to attend, please register by reserving a virtual ticket via Eventbrite. The cost is $8 (payable at the door) and includes unlimited coffee (of course!) and a tasty breakfast buffet.
We look forward to seeing you!
