Lunch & Lightning Talks

July 29 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Lightning fast presentations!

We’re inviting one and all! Entrepreneurs, graphic designers, UX designers, software developers, designers, photographers, videographers, copywriters, programmers, and more. Come, share what you do, or what you love!

But, what’s the trick? Doing it in a quick, insightful, and clear manner.

What else? The chance to learn about other businesses in and outside 1701, as well as the local community. This opens up resources and opportunities for collaboration which may not have happened otherwise!

So, what is the format? There will be a total of 6 presenters. Each presenter gets 10 slides, which are set to automatically advance every 20 seconds. The result: a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 3 minutes. There will be room for questions after each presentation.

This event is free for members and $20 for non-members.

If you don’t want to present, we won’t hold it against you! But, we would still love for you to watch the presentations, & network with some awesome people.

So, can we count you in?
