The Brew happens every month on the first Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. This event is free and open to the public.
The program begins with a 6-10-minute presentation from a local entrepreneur. The presentation features an overview of their business, why they started their business, and where they want to see it grow in the future. For startup businesses, the presentation features their background, business idea, and plans for opening in the future.
The presentation ends with 3-4 questions for the audience. The questions can be related to a particular challenge they are facing or general matters that will help them accomplish their business goals. The audience then uses the time remaining for Q&A, and feedback to help and support the presenting entrepreneur.
The Brew also provides special edition sessions throughout the year that feature expert speakers to discuss various hot topics in business. Examples include social media marketing, financial planning, local business resources, and business plan writing.
