The Entrepreneurial Center of Northwest Connecticut Community College (NCCC) is thrilled to announce the upcoming Northwest Startup Community Night on January 30 in Salisbury at the White Hart Inn, co-sponsored by Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation. This free event is an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to present their startup and receive professional feedback and advice from experienced business founders and mentors in a small group setting.
John Fiorello, director of the Entrepreneurial Center, expressed enthusiasm about the event, stating, "This is the first time we are bringing Community Startup Night to Salisbury, and it will be a great opportunity for local entrepreneurs to connect, learn, and grow in a supportive environment. We are grateful for the support from Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation for their support."
Peter Taylor, President of Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation said, “Providing opportunities for emerging entrepreneurs to connect with skilled mentors can help shape new enterprises and strengthen resolve to push forward with new ideas. Supporting events like Community Startup Nights is one way that Berkshire Taconic can foster economic opportunity in the Northwest Corner.”
The Community Startup Nights are one of many offerings of the NCCC Entrepreneurial Center whose mission is to provide training, resources, space, and support for creators looking to build businesses, giving them the tools they need to execute from inception to completion.
“It provides a safe space for entrepreneurs to innovate even when uncomfortable and inspires them to persevere guided by tools and expertise that forges a track to succeed. Most important to me, it has invited me into a philanthropic community of which I am grateful to be a part,” said Marinka Natale, Founder of LyfeLynx and LynxIQ.
