RocGrowth Candids

November 7, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

RocGrowth Candids is a bi-monthly event featuring regional entrepreneurs who share their personal stories and the lessons they’ve learned building successful businesses. We also feature innovative leaders who impact our community’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Rochester is fertile ground for technology innovators. Among the “nutrients” sustaining this community is our grassroots Maker and Gamer communities. They are also deeply interwoven with activities on our major campuses.

On Wednesday, November 7th, we will host Dan Schneiderman, nationally recognized leader in the Maker movement, and Robert Mostyn, founder of ROC Game Dev. While being employed by RIT, each of them has extended their reach into the community much beyond the campus boundaries. Our guests will share their stories and explain their role in our entrepreneurial ecosystem.

We start and finish with informal  kibitzing over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. In between, we conduct an open interview, followed by Q&A, with our featured guests.

Our events are always free, but attendance is limited to the first 100 RSVPs. You’ll want to register soon since the events “sell out.”

The event is free, thanks to our sponsor, Complemar.  We humbly request a $5 donation to our host, the non-profit Downstairs Cabaret Theatre.
