January 2nd Tuesday – Connecting with Area Entrepreneurial Opportunities
Get an update on the hot entrepreneurial initiatives in the Cincinnati area from Venture for America fellow, Roanne Lee, the 2nd Tuesday guest speaker at HIVE13 this coming January 8th, 2013 starting at 7:30pm.
Roanne is part of the core team at business-backed Cintrifuse, the regional innovation effort and startup accelerator located in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine district. It has three components: the Cintrifuse Hub, Cintrifuse Access and the Cintrifuse Fund. The Hub is the accelerator space. The Access is for mentors, instructors, and established institutions. The Fund is, well, a venture capital operation with commitments of more than $50 million in investments to launch the group’s first fund of funds.
Roanne and several HIVE members recently participated in the separate Startup Weekend held at the NKY METS Center over the Nov. 9-11 weekend. Active and empowered entrepreneurs experienced the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures in workshops where they pitched ideas and formed teams to start companies.
She will be joined by other members of the Cintrifuse Team and Venture for America Fellows.
