MESH Meetup and Community Impact Challenge Finals

August 10, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This is our BIGGEST MESH event yet!
The ThINCubator is teaming up with the Community Foundation to bring you finals of the Community Impact Challenge where 5-6 local entrepreneurs will pitch their downtown business plans for a panel of judges and compete for up to $25,000 in seed funding. These teams have been working all summer to put together plans to build a better downtown and they’re excited to share their ideas with our attendees! Don’t miss it!
We are MESH-ing from 5:30-6:30pm and then we will begin pitches & awards. Come meet other local entrepreneurs and grow your personal network.
What’s MESH?
MESH exists to build Creative Collisions between the Makers, Entrepreneurs, Students & Hackers across upstate NY. We’re helping to spark a community of innovators who want to plant ideas, cross-pollinate, and grow companies across our region.
So how does this work?
First off, Registration is required! Then, come to the thINC space, have some light food and drinks and mingle with folks who want to move there ideas forward, brainstorm, solve problems, and MESH. After mingling, we’ll showcase startups that have roots right here in upstate NY to see their real-time progress in a rapid-fire pitch.
For this MESH, the startups are a part of the Impact Community Challenge competing for $25,000!
If you have an interest in pursuing your own business, collaborating with others or just taking the next steps in helping to create a startup ecosystem, MESH is for you.
We can’t wait to see you there!
