My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hamilton County Entrepreneurship Initiative Corporation, Fishers, IN, USA
I attended a number of EAC events and am able to compare them with educational and network offerings from others. EAC events are uniformly well-designed, well-run, and well-attended. I particularly appreciate the focus of some events on helping existing entrepreneurs take the next to step to sustain or expand their existing enterprises. The programs are not just for startups or those thinking of starting a business. The events in series also step through exactly the types of issues on the minds of active entrepreneurs -- not just seeking investment, but sales, hiring and retention, dealing with new mobility technology, and the like. The more purely networking events also take steps beyond nametags to facilitate the networking process, such as scattering discussion leaders among small tables and having a brief presentation designed to start discussions.
