Tales from the Trenches

January 12, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Tales from the Trenches is a signature storytelling series and part of the Drive Binghamton innovation project.
Guest entrepreneurs will be front and center during a fireside chat, sharing the nuts & bolts of issues encountered in building a company.
Our goal is to get more contemporary founders to share their experiences building companies in Binghamton and other Upstate communities.
Founders will talk about what it’s like to run a business today in front of a live Binghamton audience. These discussions will evoke conversation, connect founders to other members of the community and inspire all who attend to Drive Binghamton forward!
This is not the usual “how to find funding” discussion. Instead, entrepreneurs will talk about how they landed on their ideas, how they made the decision to start a business, how they found their first customers, and much more.
530PM – Networking / Live Music
6-645PM – Fireside Chat
645-7PM – Audience Q&A
7-730PM – Open Conversation / Live Music
