Past Events

Networking is at the heart of what we do. From speaker events to whiskey tastings, we organize a range of events that bring the local business community together to learn and be inspired from one another. We not only take pride in our role of connecting local business leaders and facilitating opportunities for partnerships – we also enjoy doing it.

Here’s a sample of some of our recent events.
