Pints & Preneurs Shifting to 444, Adding Programming
With a total attendance of 750 over 17 events, Pints & Preneurs has become a monthly staple event in Dayton’s startup community. This relaxed happy hour provides the opportunity for entrepreneurs to build real relationships with their fellow startup founders and the community that supports them.
In November, Pints & Preneurs will shift to 444 (E. 2nd St) and add targeted programming. The kickoff of the “new & improved” Pints & Preneurs will feature students from TEC’s Commercialization Readiness Program showcasing their unique product renderings based on technologies coming from Air Force Research Laboratory, University of Dayton, Wright State University, and Naval Research Laboratory. It’s going to be awesome, so make sure to mark your calendar and join us!
Over the next several months, Pints & Preneurs will continue to pilot this new model with monthly curated programming intended to connect people across networks and social boundaries. Our hope is that by being intentional in programming sessions, we can bring together diverse audiences to truly expand our startup community and accelerate serendipity.
Starting in 2018, Pints & Preneurs will also feature an “Intro to the Ecosystem” discussion. These discussions will serve as an entry point into the ecosystem and provide new members an opportunity to build relationships with keystones in the startup community.
Here’s an example of what a Pints & Preneurs may look like next year:
- 5:00-8:00 PM, Socializing
- 5:30-6:00 PM, Intro to the Ecosystem
- 6:00-7:00 PM, Blockchain Speaker & Meetup
- 6:30-7:00 PM, How to Become an Angel Investor
- 6:00-7:30 PM, Open Office Hours with a Guest Mentor
While just an example, the above schedule would bring together techies, potential angel investors, and veteran entrepreneurs and help cross-pollinate people across networks.
We hope you’ll join us in the New Year as we roll out this newly polished event.
