Why Attend The Rally

“The quality of mentors was impressive. They were engaged and really helpful. The experience really buoyed me at a difficult time in our third year as a start-up business.”

“This is an incredible chance to get solid advice from successful local leaders, as well as meeting interesting and passionate early stage entrepreneurs. If you go to one event this year to help your business, make it the Entrepreneurs' Rally.”
